Let's see...preschoolers, paint, Valentine's, hearts, sponges...it sounds like a recipe for success!
Preschoolers love to paint, and I love to see the endless ways they combine paint to create their masterpieces. We love to "sponge paint," and then I realized, "This would be the perfect Valentine's craft!" We're going to wait a couple more weeks, but I will share more pictures on Facebook when we do it. For now, you'll have to settle with the above picture from the last time we sponge painted!
Valentine's Sponge Painting:
- sponges cut in heart shapes (you can cut them into other shapes too!)
1- Let each child choose three paint colors to go in their tin.
2- Make sure they understand how to make sponge "stamps," and give them a sponge heart (or two!).
3- Let them create a Valentine's card with their paint and sponge! When it's dry, you can add text...though it isn't really necessary!
Have you sponge painted before? Have you made plans for Valentine's? I always love to hear from you!
I may share at any of these parties!
