This Cotton Ball Painting is a do it yourself activity designed for children with sensory processing disorder to do. It is easy to set up and children enjoy it. Cotton Ball Throw Painting is a good gross motor art activity for them. This activity combines all kinds of sensory between the softness of the cotton balls and squishiness of them once they get dipped in paint and the large flinging motion the children get to experience when they throw them and the sound of them hitting the paper.It also has elements of fine motor (pinching) and gross motor (throwing), making it a good game for preschoolers or older children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Technical Specifications: 

Step One: Gather materials.

  • Large sheets of paper.
  • tape (this activity uses clear packing tape)
  • cotton balls
  • paint
  • paper plates or pie plates

Step Two: Tape pieces of white paper onto the user’s playhouse. Taping the paper onto a fence would work well.

Step Three: Mix paint with water (about equal parts of each) in tin pie plates. Be sure to use washable tempera paint because unless the children have great aim, the fence is likely to get some paint on it. A rainfall should get rid of any paint residue.

Step Four: The children dip a cotton ball in the paint and throw the cotton ball at the paper.

The Chaos and The Clurtter is a website/blog administered by Sharla Kostelyk, a mother of 5, with children with special needs. She shares her experience with some homemade sensory products and with her life. She says... I want you to find happiness in the chaos and the clutter. As a disorganized, creative, scattered, homeschooling mother of seven, including five with Special Needs, I spent years feeling like I wasn’t measuring up to the “perfect” moms I knew. I would walk around my house, stepping over toys, crunching a dry Cheerio underfoot, passing by a pile of papers, and trying to ignore the mountain of laundry that seemed to grow by the second, and I would feel like a failure. I felt overwhelmed and stressed out and sometimes was grouchy with my kids as a result, only adding to my feelings of guilt. I tried every organizational system in the book, but mastered none. I was letting the best years with my children slip away and was determined that if I could not change the state of the house, at least I could change my attitude.   At The Chaos and The Clutter, I share with you some of my small victories. I am real. I tell the truth about the imperfect parent that I am. I hope that this will be a place where people can be their true “mismatched socks because there weren’t any clean ones” selves! My everyday life is never ordinary. Most days, I still feel like I am drowning in the busyness! I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but I will share anything that has helped me, anything that hasn’t, and the humorous moments in between. Another type of clutter that I am trying to get rid of is financial clutter. There is just no happiness to be found there! We are trying to climb out of debt and I will also share those tips I learn along the way. I hope that you will join me in trying to find the blessings and the joy in among the chaos and the clutter!
