I started this activity as a way to entertain Paisley, but it didn't take too long before Erik was in on it too. They both really had a ball with it.
All you need are some cotton balls and a bowl (or two, or three, or however many your kids demand). Remember to watch your little one closely, the cotton balls would stick quite nicely into a little throat. I filled up a bowl with cotton balls and showed it to Paisley, telling her that it was full. We played with the cotton balls until the bowl was empty, at which point I made sure to tell her that it was empty. We did this a few more times, but by then Erik had joined in and I just turned the two of them loose with the cotton balls.
|I brought over a few more bowls when Erik joined in so we wouldn't have sharing issues.|
|Erik found a small cup (it actually came with a bottle of cough syrup I bought, but it fell out of the medicine cupboard and Erik has claimed it as his own) and started experimenting to see how many cotton balls he could fit into it.|
