Hulk Smash with Cotton Balls
The boys have seen the movie more times then I can count. So many times that they can recite lines from the movie, well at least O can. One phrase from the movie we hear often in our house is "Hulk SMASH." O likes to say this when getting undressed for the bath. He takes his shirt off and throws it to the ground saying, "Hulk SMASH." It's hilarious!
Recently I volunteered in O's classroom and they had a "Smashing Balls" activity on the playground. Immediately, I thought to myself, "Hulk SMASH!" Fast forward a few weeks, it's spring break and both boys are home sick and confined to the house and then I remembered the baked cotton balls smashing activity. It took about an hour from start to finish to prepare and bake. The boys loved the activity, even pulling out their tools to add to the fun.
What you'll need:
Nonstick baking spray
Preheat over to 350°
Step 1: Mix one cup of flour and 1 cup of water. Mix well until smooth.
Step 2: Pour equal amounts of mixture into separate bowls
Step 3: Add 3 drops of food coloring to each separate bowl. Mix well and add more food coloring if needed to achieve the color you want.
Step 4: Using your tongs, dip cotton balls one at a time, in the color of your choice, fully coating the cotton ball.
Step 5: Place on a foil lined baking sheet. Be sure to use a non stick baking spray before placing cotton balls on the baking sheet.
Step 6: Bake for 45 minutes. Let cool 15-20 minutes before SMASHING!
We had so much fun!
