Spring Flowers Sponge Painting Canvas Art For Kids

Sponge paint spring flowers

What do you need:

  • Cloth
  • brush with sponge top (if you are working with a group, it is easier to have one for each of the colors)
  • variety of paints – flowery colors
  • green marker
  • bowls large enough to dip the bottle brush in

Step by step instructions

Preparing for the activity:

Draw flower stems on the canvas with a green marker. Also draw the grass. Older children can do this on their own while younger children may need help.

Pour the paints into the bowls. Add a little water to each of them. They should be a bit runny.

Now comes the fun part! Take the sponge brush and dip it in one of the colors. We started with yellow…

Press the sponge into the top corner of your canvas – this will cause the sun to shine above your flowers.

If you are working with a single sponge brush, wash the sponge tipped brush thoroughly before moving on to the next color and wring out any excess liquid with a towel.

Now let’s make all the pretty little flowers. Dip the brush in a flowery color and dab it onto the stems you drew earlier.

Tip: Young children can work on a blank canvas and do the flowers first and the stem drawing comes next.

Why only make flowers of one color when you can make two or even more!

Let your canvas dry completely before displaying it.

This is a wonderful spring art project for preschoolers or toddlers to make in the classroom. It will make a wonderful display indeed.
