Dandelion Sponge Prints
Take a round washing up sponge and dip it in white paint. Then use it to print white dandelion sponge prints onto your black card. Use your straws to add on a few green stalks and you’ll have a beautiful print painting ready in minutes.
Time: 10 minutes
Age: Toddlers to Little Kids
What you need:
- Black paper or card
- White paint
- Green paint
- Washing up brush
- Drinking straw
Step 1: Make dandelion prints
Dip a washing up brush into your white paint. Check all the bristles are covered evenly.
Print it onto your paper, pressing down quite firmly and lifting up in one clean motion.
Step 2: Paint green stalks
You can paint on the green stalks using a paint brush.
However, toddlers might find it easier to print the stalks using a drinking straw. Dip the straw into the green paint and press it down onto the black card.
You could even keep going and make more dandelion sponge prints in different colours!
