Rainbow Cotton Ball Craft

Craft and cotton go so well together. We always have fun using cotton balls in our activities. Today we want to show you how to make this cute rainbow cotton ball craft.

We could come up with lots of cotton painting ideas but Spring is almost here and St. Patrick’s Day too, so a rainbow activity is a good idea! a good tip is that you could do this craft with cotton buds too, just a little smaller. This is simple and easy art and craft with cotton balls that you can do today with your kids.

Clip a cotton ball with a clothespin. You can use the same clothespin and switch cotton balls or use a clothespin for each color if that is easier for you.

Dab the cotton ball into the paint and then dab the cotton ball onto the canvas making the curved shape of a traditional rainbow, a rainbow shooting across the sky or just have fun with the colors and make your own masterpiece!
