Chocolay Children’s Center Creative Kids Idea…

Cotton Ball Corn Cob

What you’ll need:

  • 8”x 10” piece of green craft foam
  • 4-5 cotton balls
  • Yellow acrylic craft paint
  • Scissors
  • White craft glue
  • Paintbrush

How to make it:

  1. Cut a corn cob shape out of the green craft foam.
  2. Line center of the craft foam with white craft glue.
  3. Pull small pieces off of the cotton balls and roll into balls with your fingers.
  4. Place the rolled balls onto the craft glue. Continue this step until entire center of green foam is filled with “corn kernels.”
  5. Dip paintbrush into yellow paint. Paintbrush should be full, but not dripping.
  6. Using a dabbing motion, add paint to the cotton until mostly covered (see image). Allow to dry for about two hours.
  7. After paint has had a chance to dry, add more yellow paint where needed.
  8. Let dry completely.
