This week for our Make Something Monday, my daughter and I made a fun little art project with cotton balls. The craft was so simple and fun and the finished art made a huge impact!

- Cotton balls
- Food coloring
- Small bowls
- Gloves (optional)
Squeeze out excess color and lay on protected baking sheet to dry.
Set the cotton balls out in the sun for an hour or two to dry. Once dry cut the cotton into pieces and then pull the smaller pieces apart so the cotton was fluffier. ( I found it easier to use scissors to cut the cotton first.)
You can see in the photo below how fluffy the cotton balls were after I pulled them apart.
I gave my little one the glue and she went to town. For smaller children you may want to handle the glue or use a glue stick.
