Fun Things For Kids To Do #2 : Smashing Cotton Balls

smashingcotton

This was another fun one, and so easy and inexpensive.  I just got a bag of cotton balls from the dollar store, and barely used half the bag…kept the kids busy for a good 30 minutes.  All they did was smash them with cups, or pull them apart, but they thought it was neat.  Anything to pass some of the downtime of the summer days.  These might even be fun to glue together and build things with.

Place on a cookie sheet lined with foil.  Bake at 300 degrees for about 45 minutes.

Break out the hammers and let the kiddos smash away!

ENJOY!!
