Cotton Bud Painting

A great activity to encourage your little ones fine motor skills & concentration.

You Will Need:

  • paint
  • paper
  • pencil
  • cotton buds

Draw a simple design on a piece of paper like a flower or house & encourage your little one to dab the cotton buds along the lines, you can explore the different colours.

Top Tip: put a few cotton buds in each paint colour , less chance of the colours merging into Brown – as we all know that’s what ends up happening!


What will you paint.
