Cotton wool, painting, birthday card, pre school, alien


I was experimenting with different painting techniques with my two year old and he loved dabbing with cotton wool balls. We turned his blobs into aliens and then used to decorate a birthday card.

Time: 10 minutes
Age: Under 5's
Level: Easy

Materials
Paint
Card
Cotton wool balls
Googly eyes
Black marker

Method
Dip cotton wool ball in paint and then dab on cards. You'll get slightly different shapes and sizes each time.
