Love the clothes pin idea! My son is in a "don't get my fingers dirty" stage - that totally would help!

Stopping by from Sharing Saturday!

What a great idea! I have done sponge painting with my daughter with sponges shaped as certain things--snowmen, Santa, etc. for Christmas, but never thought of this idea. Love it! Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!

Carrie...I LOVE your idea of making shaped sponges! Thanks so much for sharing. I've been trying to think of new things to do with them during February vacation and I think they would love that. And so inexpensive. Thanks for sharing!
