Sponge Printing

You Will Need:

• Clean dry sponges
• Scissors
• Spring clothes pins
• Construction paper
• Washable tempera paints
• Paper plates

Lay down old newspaper to cover the work area before beginning the project

STEP 1 - Using a scissors cut the dry sponges into any large shapes you like - geometric are good. If you are adventurous try animal or letter shapes.

STEP 2 - Pinch a clothes pin into the middle of the sponge to create a handle.

STEP 3 - Pour a little paint of different colors onto several paper plates (about a fist sized pool of paint per plate).

STEP 4 - Help your child dip the sponge into the paint and press onto the paper to create a print. Repeat using as many sponges and paints as you like.

The sponges can be washed and air dried to be used again and again!

*** HINT - Sponge paint designs onto solid colored wrapping or mailing paper to create unique gift wrap or onto solid folded cardstock to create original greeting cards.
