Fun Things For Kids To Do #2 : Smashing Cotton Balls
This was another fun one, and so easy and inexpensive. Â 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. Â All they did was smash them with cups, or pull them apart, but they thought it was neat. Â Anything to pass some of the downtime of the summer days. Â These might even be fun to glue together and build things with.
Combine flour and water til smooth.
Add in a few drops of food coloring.
Dip cotton balls in the flour mixture.
Place on a cookie sheet lined with foil. Â Bake at 300 degrees for about 45 minutes.
Break out the hammers and let the kiddos smash away!
