Our daughter attends a play-based pre-school where they do lots of process art. This is an activity that she loved from Playschool and wanted to do at home. At school they created paintings with various shapes of sponges. At home she wanted to replicate this with circle sponges so we bought various kinds of circular sponges from the kitchen area of a store and enjoyed an afternoon of experimenting while her baby brother napped. Then our older son wanted to give it a try! Materials Thick paper Circular sponges Paint Craft tray We always find a smock helpful too! Directions Don your smock. Squirt some of your paint into your tray and dip your sponges into the paint. Alternatively you can squirt the paint onto the sponge and then disperse it with your finger. (Which was our son’s preferred method!) Apply your sponges to your paper. Allow your work to dry and hang it up to enjoy! We also loved this other kitchen sponge- a dish wand! Have you painted with things from the kitchen supply area? If so, which ones? Purpose Experimenting with various items to paint with. Safety Notes We suggest that you wear a smock and use a craft tray to protect your clothing and surfaces. Please like & share: Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
