Painting with Cotton Balls and Clothespins


Minimize painting mess with this cotton ball and clothespin trick


 I don't know about you, but I am always looking for ways to minimize mess while still letting kids have their share of fun. My 3 year old loves to paint - finger paint, brush paint, you name it. Well, with a little 7 month old crawling around everywhere, I wanted to let her have some fun but also wanted to ensure I had a set up that was quick clean up in case that little booger decided to attack his sister. 

I remembered seeing painting with cotton balls and clothespins somewhere, so I set it up today. So simple, so easy, so quick! I used a cupcake pan but you can put your paint in anything. My idea for the future is to save the glass baby food jars and keep the paint in there so I can also store it better after it is done.

Anyway, pour your paint. Then attach a cotton ball to a clothespin and put into each compartment of paint. Painting with cotton balls, or you could use pom moms, allows a sponge painting technique to occur if dabbed.

Here is my baby's masterpiece. I call it abstract art.. :)


Or course I wanted to try it out too. I can so see this being used in the classroom for painting to accompany different writing projects, or just for fun. I made the butter fly below because although it is freezing cold in February, spring is around the corner!! This could make a cute project for that time of the year!

  3. My friend tried it with his son. Results were amazing! It was a masterpiece even by my standards and I’m usually very cold to kids paintings. Strange thing is that I never knew about this type of drawing. Today’s morning was the first time I heard about it. Maybe because of that I’m bad at drawing, because my parents didn’t stimulate me in that way, when I was little. Maybe if they tried something that you are describing here I wouldn’t write reviews on DissertationCapital.com now.

  12. When painting with oil paints, it really is a good idea to learn the distinctive facets of oil based paints. Oil paints dry pretty slowly and it is therefore quite simple to fix problems, or change the route of your piece of art. Building Façade painting

  13. Thanks to you for sharing this above interesting and informative article with us. I have really very enjoyed to reading it. Do you know about the juggling between tasks kills productivity. Better to focus on one task at a time, than to undertake several at the same time. Teachers who think they are good at multitasking end up being exhausted and ineffective. However, those who focus on one task at a time are more efficient and faster. Indeed, teachers are the champions of multitasking. They carry out several activities (readings, workshops, lesson preparations, communication with parents of students, correction of homework, research on the Internet, assessment, assessments, etc.). How to avoid multitasking? The effective solution is to focus on one task on the principle of mindfulness. It is very clear that multitasking makes the person impatient, because they are used to obtaining several results at the same time. Prepare moments of disconnection in your day.
