Sponge Painting for Kids: Easy Art idea!

I’m die cutting some cleaning sponges. Sponge painting is super fun for the kids and we are making Father’s day cards!

I must say, father’s day is the most talked about topic in our household right now. We have plans, gifts to make, gifts to buy, and breakfast to baking.

And we already have a card ready– this was a fun crafty Mom and Daughter afternoon activity

How to make your own sponge stamps:

I always enjoy using my paper crafting supplies and tools to create something fun with my kids. I love the big smile they have when they get to say “I made that!”

To make sponge shapes to stamp with, I bought regular kitchen sponges. You can die cut them or hand cut shapes using a pair of scissors.

I die-cut various shapes and sizes, the smaller ones are perfect for young toddlers to hold and stamp with.

Using the Easy Grip Scissors I also cut some of the waste bits into small triangles and squares. These are great to stamp and create a background.

Sponge painting for kids:

I precut some cream cardstock to fit a card front using the Card making Bypass Trimmer. This trimmer is smaller and more compact in size, so it’s perfect for card making. 

Then I pulled out Tempura paint bottles and let the kids have fun with the stamps.

Once they were done, I added a sentiment to each and adhered them onto cards. Simple fun colorful Father’s Day cards that they had so much fun making!
