Use Cut Sponges as Stamps in Print Making
Have fun with your children making beautiful Valentine’s Day art for family and friends. Use new slightly moistened sponges (for protection from bacteria with used sponges), and draw an outline of a heart or flower onto sponge with a watercolor pastel or a Sharpie. Adult cuts out shape with strong scissors. Children’s scissors aren’t strong enough. Dip cut sponge into paint that has been squirted onto a paper plate. Press wet side of sponge onto paper and carefully lift off. Repeat in desired pattern. Voila! Your child will have a beautiful print to give to someone he or she loves.
