Cotton Wool Ball Painting - alice & amelia

This afternoon we did Cotton Wool Ball Painting. As much as painting with a brush is fun this just introduces something new and acts the same as a sponge just slightly less mess! You will need cotton wool balls and clothes pegs. Simply attach the peg to the cotton wool then use it for dabbing into the paint and onto the paper. I got the colours and the cotton wool all ready for Amelia and sat her down to start. She was so over excited shouting her version of “stamp stamp stamp” every time…

Troll Bath Time Lovely bubbly fun. We had foam shampoo and lots of lovely coloured potions! A few spray bottles, sponges, puffs etc. And just for fun, we added some strawberry scent to the water. The trolls clothes needed a wash to, so after a good scrub and swish around in the lovely bubbles, we hung the washing on our tiny troll sized line. We'll doing this one again! - Roman says tomorrow!
