Cotton Candy Craft

Sherri Osborn
No trip to the circus is complete without getting some sweet, sticky cotton candy. This craft may not be sweet and sticky, but it sure looks like the real thing.

  • Age Guideline: 3 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 15 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

Start off by fluffing up several cotton balls by gently pulling on them. You can use white cotton balls but it will be more fun if you could find pink and/or blue cotton balls.

Generously cover one half of the paper towel or toilet paper roll with glue, starting at one end and adding glue all around to the middle. Stick on the fluffed up cotton balls so it looks like cotton candy.

For a finishing touch, pinch the open end of the paper towel roll together and staple it closed so it looks a little more like a cone shape.
