I recently wrote about using sponges to paint with toddlers and Carrie from Crafty Moms Share left a comment on that post about painting with sponge shapes. I thought that was a really clever idea, and I just had to try it!
I was thrilled to find a package of 6 sponges at the dollar store. I traced a design on the sponges and cut them out. And then it was time to paint...
I squeezed a little bit of paint onto paper plates and spread it around so that the boys would be able to get an even amount of paint on the stamps. We also used star and bird bottle top stamps to add detail to the pictures.
To finish the pictures, we added some wiggly eyes, pipe cleaner arms, foam carrot noses and a construction paper hat.
