Cotton Balls: Fun Indoor Activities

Looking for some fun indoor activities to do with your kiddo? Break out the cotton balls! Cotton balls are an easy, budget friendly way to recreate pretend snow in the comfort of your home!

Check out some of these activities our All-Stars did that kept them busy and moving:

Snow Shoveling

Empty out the cotton ball bags and grab a play shovel or broom. Your kiddo can get moving and have fun shoveling snow!

Snow Ball Fight!

If you have multiples or want to get involved in the fun, have a snow ball fight! This is a great way to get your kiddo moving their body, as your little(s) will stay busy squatting, running, and throwing.

Build a Snowman!

For a craftier activity, grab some contact paper, pom poms, and cut out a hat, nose, and arms. Place the contact paper on a vertical surface and draw a snowman. Your kiddo will love sticking cotton balls on to decorate!

We hope you enjoyed these indoor activities! Comment below with your favorite way to play with snowballs.
