Sponge Flowers

These sponge-painted flowers are the perfect way to welcome spring! For this craft, you will need:

  • any color construction paper as your background
  • small pieces of torn sponge clipped to a clothespin
  • tempura paint in various colors
  • construction paper for vase
  • black crayon
  • scissors

Clip clothespins to each piece of sponge, and put the tempura paint into an egg carton or muffin tin to keep separated. You should have a sponge for each color.

Dip a sponge into the paint, and dab onto your construction paper. Scatter various colors all over the top two-thirds of the paper.

Cut a vase from another piece of construction paper and glue along the bottom third of the paper.

Using a black crayon, draw flower and leaf shapes on top of the sponge painted shapes. Remember, the crayon shapes do not need to conform to the painted shapes!
