Easel Activities #12

Sponge Stamping

Bookmark and Share

Purchase sponge stamps or make your own for this easy activity. This activity is a great way to introduce and talk about shapes, as well as types of lines. For best results use a shallow tray for your paints and put a little bit of paint in at a time. During holidays or for special events create appropriate shapes. For extra fun, if your child is ready to use scissors, let them create their own unique sponge shapes.

Use sponge stamps with a variety of textures and shapes. The little boy in the photo enjoyed choosing and exploring the shapes at least as much, if not more, than painting with them.

    He loved the shapes. Trying them out on horizontal and vertical surfaces. Seeing if they changed shape when smushed, tossed, etc.
