As a preschooler my son loved hands-on, sensory learning activities and destroying things because he’s all boy! Baked cotton ball activities are a fun & simple sensory activity that fits the bill so I created a bunch of activities using them that my son really enjoyed!
To create Baked Cotton Balls you’ll just need a few basic supplies and an oven.
- Cotton Balls
- Tempera Paint or Food Coloring
- Baking sheet
Baked Cotton Ball Activities
It all started with Smashing Moon Rocks. This is an activity I created to go along with a fun Space themed unit. Smashing moon rocks is a fun way for preschoolers to practice fine motor skills & you can also incorporate other learning such as identifying letters and numbers!
Next I created baked cotton ball Easter eggs that my son smashed while reviewing some letters! You could also use baked cotton balls to practice simple math equations!
I also created some baked cotton ball shamrocks for a St. Patrick’s day theme. Using this same method you could also create baked cotton ball flowers for a Spring theme by connected a bunch of cotton balls around a cotton ball in the center.
