Painted Styrofoam Ball Dress up necklace - fine motor activity and craft for kids

Like many little girls, my daughter loves to play dress up. She loves putting on her princess dresses & trying to walk in mommy’s high heels and she loves jewelry too. Lately, she has been enjoying threading buttons & pasta and anything else she can get her hands on to make necklaces for me & her to wear. Yesterday, we added Styrofoam to that list too.

We grabbed a handful of 2″ Styrofoam balls out of our craft supplies & then one larger one. I poked a wooden skewer into each to make it easier for painting & drying.


Hold on to the skewer & use acrylic paints to paint around each ball.

Put the skewers in a deep container ball side up & let them stand to dry.


Once dry, remove the skewer & use a plastic yarn needle to poke through the existing hole & string up your painted Styrofoam.

Tie a knot at the end to finish it off.

Just look at that smile.
