Here's what you will need:
Cardboard and strong glue
Paint and paper
1. To start, cut out any shape you like from a kitchen sponge. Smaller shapes are easier to control.
2. Next, you can glue a piece of cardboard to the sponge to make a handle or use a peg to hold onto the shape so your fingers do not get too messy.
3. Dip the sponge shape into some 5 Star NZACRYL Acrylic Paint or 5 Star Artists Block Printing Ink and then press it onto the paper. If you're making an overall pattern, repeat the process to cover the rest of the page. Again, encourage your students to change the shape and colour to make the page more interesting.
This activity is a great way to encourage creativity and experimentation with colour and pattern. So have fun and enjoy the results!

By cutting out different shapes and changing the colour scheme, you can make an unlimited number of patterns. Additionally, the use of a handle or peg makes it easier to control the sponge, preventing a mess and allowing for greater precision. Overall, this is a fun and low-cost activity that is sure to inspire creativity and provide satisfying results.
