- Next, cut small “sprinkles” out of the cotton rounds using the scissors. Glue the sprinkles onto the donuts.

What is my child learning and improving?
- Improves and strengthens fine motor skills as the child is pinching and releasing the droppers.
- Improves creativity (choosing colors for the sprinkles).
- Great as a quiet, independent activity
TIP- You can easily create other creative ways to use cotton rounds. For my daughter I cut out flower petals, leaves and a stem and we put it together for her to paint!
