To do your own SHAPED SPONGE PAINTINGS you will need:
○ Sponges
○ Scissors
○ Paint
○ Paper

I used plain-Jane Dollar Tree sponges…

and used scissors to cut them into shapes…

Jaxon has to touch everything…and approve of the process.

He could not wait to get started on his project….

Surprisingly the sponges are SUPER easy to cut!

I made a square, a rectangle, a heart…and an EGG for Easter.☺

As soon as the sponges were ready…Jax dunked them in and started his painting.

He painted and painted with the sponges.

I get such a kick out of watching him when he’s in his zone.
He switched out the different shapes on his own…but he really wasn’t into using the sponges as stamp to make the actual shapes. And it was his painting…so I let him do his thing!☺
