I want candy... Cotton Candy (craft/card)

 I am a huge fan of cotton candy.  I know I'm an adult but I get excited just like a lil kid in a candy store when I know we are going to a fair because there will be cotton candy there.  I always have to talk my hubby into letting me get some.  :)  


Well we did not actually have real cotton candy so I told my daughter we could make "pretend cotton candy."  She was confused but then realized we could make a craft and had a fun time creating this project.


The project was very simple but yet fun.  All you need is toilet paper tube, cotton balls, glue, h20 food coloring mixture in a spray bottle.   


Stretching and gluing on the cotton balls... it looks so much like cotton candy.  Had to reinforce that we could not eat this because we were just pretending.  

There her tongue is out again.  Here we are adding our color to the cotton to make it look like tasty cotton candy.  


Yummy... really wish I had the real stuff!  

 We made 2 cards to give out.  I forgot to take a picture after we wrote on them.  On one of them we wrote:  "Happy Birthday Daddy, hope you have the sweetest day ever."  The 2nd card we gave to our pastor's wife and that said "You are sweeter then Cotton Candy."  



The craft did not take very long but still worked on some fine motor with using glue, stretching the cotton balls out, and using the spray bottle.  :)  




Maybe my hubby could buy me this Nostalgia electric Cotton Candy Maker off of Amazon!  :)

Thanks! I am not sure if she had more fun creating and making it or handing the card to her dad and "nana" at our church. It makes me excited that she loves to be a giver! :)

Unquestionably imagine that that you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to understand of.
I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst other
people consider concerns that they just do not recognise about.
You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly
as defined out the entire thing with no need
side-effects , other folks could take a signal.
Will likely be again to get more. Thank you

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
