Make a simple and endlessly customizable cotton ball craft from Megan!
When you’re a single mom, or live most of your week as a ‘single mom’ with your husband traveling or deployed, or just away for the majority of the day, it can be very tiring and lonesome not having that adult connection.
Our member of the month in The Activity Room has a husband that travels most of the week and she’s home with her kids plus daycare kids she looks after.
By the end of the day, you’d just feel at your wit’s end.
The daily activities and bonus weeks for extra ideas are just perfect to get the stimulation in a positive way!
Megan joined a 7 Day Activity Challenge and knew by day three that the hands-on approach of our activities was exactly what she needed.
Megan found inspiration and support!
“The Activity Room has given me so much more than I imagined. I thought I would just scroll through on occasion to see some activities. However not the case. Not only does the layout help me get prepared weekly but also helps when I need something quick.
“Mostly for me as the mom I have gotten so much support and encouragement from the other moms/ caretakers! The mom support I have received is more than I could have asked for when joining a kids activity group!
“Jamie’s plans can be used for a 10-month-old all the way up to adults (yes, I enjoy them too!).”

Easy Cotton Ball Craft:
We made a ghost with cotton balls, but this would be super cute as any design. A tree, a heart, a ghost, a pumpkin, anything!
Select a colored piece of paper and cut the shape as big as you want. Next, the kids can glue cotton balls all over their whole shape.
Or not, if they prefer to leave some space. It’s totally up to them!
Then, pull out the paints and have them paint the cotton balls as well! An activity that kept going!
For a twist, you could even have the big kids draw and or cut the shape. You can keep the paint matching a theme- or not!
This easy cotton ball activity is totally customizable to your child’s interests, abilities, and attention span.
This is a craft for children of all ages. It’s easy to modify it for kids with different needs or abilities, too.
