Here are some easy winter crafts for children that will use up some of those extra cotton balls in the bathroom medicine cabinet.
This igloo craft will need some cotton balls from the bathroom. You will need approximately thirty of them.
Other than the cotton balls, all you need is some glue and a piece of paper.
Igloos are actually made of blocks of ice, and it is incredible to watch them built.
This is a fun craft to make in school or at home, it is not messy and the supplies are few.
You can always add a little Eskimo to the doorway of your igloo too!
Grab your cotton balls, a piece of paper and some glue. Let's get crafting!
Take about 15 of your cotton balls and cut them in half. Make sure the cut is along the same was as the grain so you have flat pieces.
Draw out your igloo outline. Fill half of it with glue, then stack your cotton balls in three rows.
Repeat this for the other half. Make sure not to put any blocks on your door area.
For this part you will use some cotton balls that are NOT cut in half. Glue these around the border of your door.
This way they will stand out further than the walls of your igloo - giving a three dimensional affect.
Take 4-5 cotton balls and stretch them apart so they are stringy.
Glue these stringy pieces of cotton balls across the bottom of your igloo, as the ground.
Look at that! We've got a 3D igloo, made of cotton balls so it won't melt either!
These easy winter crafts are great because they are also something with a soft feel so there some interaction with a variety of your senses.
As always, come back again! We are always crafting!
