I was trying to clean up one of the junk cupboards that I have full of craft stuff and I found some cotton balls and Popsicle sticks. I saw someone make snowflake ornaments with Popsicle sticks and buttons and was wondering if cotton balls would work.
As I took out the supplies, cotton balls, Popsicle sticks and white glue. Isla also hopped up and started helping right away. She grabbed the glue and just started going to town. It was neat to see her really enjoying it and actually doing it by herself.
After all the cotton balls were on I quickly took it away to dry - since Isla just wanted to play with it more. I added a bit more glue to make sure the cotton balls were going to stay on.
The next day, when Lilo was making her ornaments (I'll post later) Isla was wanting to do something too, so that's when I thought about adding the snowflake sequins.
On the back I glue gunned a piece of string to hang it from and wrote Isla's name and year.
Looking at it now I could have put another Popsicle stick. I did try to space them out more but the glue is slippery before it dries and a 20 month old isn't that patient.
I still think they turned out super cute.
