You Will Need:
Cotton balls, tongs, chop sticks (for older children) or toast tweezers, an egg carton or ice cube tray, bowl
Place cotton balls in the bowl and have the child fill the egg carton using the tongs to pick up the cotton balls.
This is a fun activity that your child can do in the kitchen while you prepare dinner. Questions you might ask, “How many cotton balls can you put in each hole? Are they heavy? Is the cotton scratchy?. . . no, well, how does it feel? How many balls will it take to fill up the egg carton?”
