How to Create A Cotton Ball Kinara
Grab a piece of cardboard, your glue and cotton balls. Draw a rough outline of a Kinara on your cardboard using a pencil.
Next, glue down you cotton balls over your drawing in the shape of a Kinara. Create seven candles and the holders all with the cotton balls similar to the photo referent below.
Creating your Colourful Kinara
If this is the first time your little one is using an eye dropped I suggest practicing using it with just water before adding the food colouring.
Once they get the hang of it add the food colouring to the water. Grab five bowls or glasses and fill them half way with water. Add a few drops of different food colouring into each container. For black, I mixed brown and blue together.
Invite your child to using the droppers to colour the cotton balls and create their Kinara!
