Shaped sponges can be easily made to go along with any type of theme or art activity. You can cut cellulose sponges to geometric shapes, or you can purchase pre cut shapes. Another idea is to purchase at your local craft supply store the sponges that are condensed flat; you then draw a shape on the flat surface and cut out. When these sponges are submerged in water the shape is easy to use. Younger kids often use them to paint, while older kids use them to print, sometimes creating their own patterns and designs. They can be used in the water too; making prints on the sidewalk is fun! A great party activity!
