Spring flower sponge canvas painting for kids

Spring flower sponge painting

What you need:

  • Oil paint
  • Bottle brush with sponge tip (if working in a team, it’s easiest to use one for each color)
  • various paints – flower colors
  • green marker
  • bowl large enough to dip the bottle brush into

Step by step guide

Prepare for action:

Draw the stem of the flower on the fabric with a green marker. Draw the grass as well. Older children can do this themselves while younger children may need help.

Pour the paint into bowls. Add a little water to each bowl. It should be a little runny.

Now for the fun part! Take your sponge brush and dip it in one of the colors. We’ll start with yellow…

Press the sponge into the top corner of the fabric – this will create a sunburst effect on your flowers.

If you’re only using one sponge brush, rinse the sponge brush before moving on to the next color and blot away any excess liquid with a towel.

Now let’s make all the little flowers. Dip your brush in the flower paint and dot it on the stem you drew earlier.

Tip: Younger children can work on a white canvas and draw the flower first, then the stem.

Why make just one color flower when you can make two or even more!Allow canvas to dry completely before displaying.

This is a great spring art project for preschoolers or toddlers to do in the classroom. It really makes a great display.
