Homeschool christmas lights art out of sponge painting
Sponge painted christmas lights.
Gather your materials.You will need a kitchen sponge,wash,gouache,scissors,some plain white paper,some bright thin paint,tape and black construction paper.
Start by drawing a light bulb shape on the sponge,Cut out.We used guache for our paint,but you could use any paint or even an ink pad or washing markers.Essentially you are stamping the sponge.Stamp!
If like and want to try this with a toddlers here are my tips…Ask your child where they want the sponge,then place it there,then have them slap the sponge and FREEZE.My daughter koved this,she loved freezing and it helped get nice prints for the effect.We managet to have fun with these tricks,she also directed which color to use.Do another color…and repeat.I blotted my sponge between uses but I did not bother washing it.Let the bulbs dry.While I finished up.Add squiggly circles at the neck of each bulb.Connect the bulbs with a marker ”wire” and finished.
