These cotton ball painted wreaths are a great fine motor craft for your kids this Christmas! If you’ve browsed my page before you have probably seen cotton ball painting a few times. I try to incorporate it into each holiday season. My kids LOVE using cotton balls to paint & they are strengthening their fine motor skills as they do it!
RANDOM FACT: In ancient Greece, wreaths were awarded to athletes victorious in the Olympic Games and as prizes to poets and orators. Young couples in ancient Greece hung wreaths on their friends door as a sign of affection.
I like to share these random facts with my kids as we craft & thought I would share them with all of you too!
Here is what you’ll need:
- White paper – we used cardstock
- Red paper for background (optional)
- Cotton balls
- Clothes pin
- Paint – we used acrylic
- Ribbon tied into a bow

3. Allow to dry.
4. Dip your q-tip into red paint & dab on your wreath.
5. Glue a bow to the bottom
