“I can make a rainbow!” Yes, you can – even if you’re only 2 – with this fun and easy art idea, using cotton wool balls and watered-down paint.
MFM crafter mum Abi Walker created this rainbow activity with her daughter Maisie, 2 – and shared some great step-by-step how-to pictures with us.
Abi also says that Maisie found using the pipette easier than she’d expected – and using the medicine syringe was even easier. “I though it would be a challenge for toddler hands,” Abi says, “but it worked well – Maisie managed fine with both.
“The whole activity was great fun. And we even managed to get a few rainbow prints from it onto some more paper before it dried – which was another exciting addition!”
