Painting never seems to get old for my kids, but sometimes it’s nice to break out of our routine and try alternative painting techniques and materials.

Sponge Painting fits the bill nicely.  What I love about making Sponge Prints is that it’s cheap – all you need to do is use a spare kitchen sponge you have on hand or get a pack of 3 for $1.00 in the dollar Target bins, like we did.  And it’s easy – just swap out your regular brush with a sponge.  Plus, it’s super-squishy, which means it’s super fun!

Materials

  • a kitchen sponge
  • paint
  • painting surface (e.g., paper, cardboard, etc.)
