The idea for these baked cotton balls came from Play Create Explore and Making Boys Men. Once they were baked, we added our own spin to make this a learning activity and gross motor exercise in one! Here’s what you’ll need: flour, water, cotton balls, food coloring (optional), a permanent marker and some kid-friendly hammers (we used from two of our toys).
This girl had the BEST IDEA!!! She said, "My son is in preschool and the adorable art work is pouring in. I know he isn't going to want all these old papers when he is older so I am taking a picture of everything, keeping my very favorites to display at holidays or in a scrapbook and everything else just has to go. I found this amazing idea for displaying his artwork using the photos I have taken.
another pinner said: "What I love is that each morning, Charlotte and Amelia rush to their envelopes to see what we've written. The notes are sometimes a simple observation of a charitable act or a quick drawing to make them laugh. I love that Charles and I force ourselves to take a minute each evening to think about why we love our children. It's my version of Oprah's gratitude journal.
