Creative Saturdays – Sponge Painting – Tadeo Turtle

There is a linky below in which to link your creative kids ideas or your kids’ pictures or crafts. Let’s build a creative kids’ community. 


I know that we can use sponges to paint around shapes and make a picture. But today I thought I would use sponge painting for a background to a picture. I used the flat side, the edges and even squeezed out the paint.

Kids love sponges. The best ones of course are the sea sponges – they have lots of texture. This time I used the regular sponges – cut in small pieces. I used the three primary colours – each one in a separate container. That way you won’t make “mud”.


Here are a couple of beginning pictures of the process.


In this one I started to squeeze out the paint and use the edges.



And then the final product.


Don’t forget to send me your child’s pictures. Send them to Janis Cox and I will put them up in the Children’s Gallery.
