Okay, I know you’ll agree with me here. Sponge brushes are an elite crafting tool. THERE. I said it! They bring endless amounts of fun, so many textures, and they’re SUPER cheap. Each time your students put the brush down, it leaves a slightly different paint stroke behind… there is something so much fun and unique about that! Encourage your kids to play with different strokes and patterns with sponge brush so they can see for themselves how fun art can be.

Grab a variety of sizes from your leaf collection and secure them to your piece of paper, leaving plenty of room in between each one. Take your sponge paint brush and begin to pat the paint around the edges of each leaf. Be sure to encourage the kids to mix the colors! After you blot all around the leaves go ahead and fill in the remaining open spaces on the paper with your sponge paintbrush. Once you have it completed remove the leaves and scotch tape and see the unique outlines left behind!
