    As long as she had fun mom then it’s a hit!! My guy doesn’t like goop but I think he would greatly enjoy smashing them with a hammer.

    My high schooler has to make a 3D Atom model and needs approximately 70 balls in 3 different colors. Styrofoam and fuzzy balls are too expensive for that many and the specific colors needed. I bought a bag of cotton balls hoping I could spray paint them, but I’m reading everywhere that’s not a good idea. Question: if I follow your directions and bake them and they come out with a hard shell… will I be able to poke a wire through the shell and also, will they be “round” enough to look like a ball?
    Thanks in advance for any advice!

      Hi Christie – Definitely you’ll be able to poke a hole through them. I’m not sure if you can get them 100% round though. Oval for sure if you trim off the edges, but they are by no means perfect. I don’t know how picky they are for these projects but if it was me, I’d be too much of a perfectionist to do it this way. Is there enough time to make the balls out of play dough? You could try a DIY playdough recipe and make different colours, and let the balls sit out for a few nights until they dry out?
