4th of July Sponge Roller Painting

Photobucket
It is always neat to see a child discover and use new materials. I have had these sponge rollers for a while,but had not used them until today.Once my son got the hang of them, he was very engaged.That is just what I like to see!He painted with red and blue paint, in honor of The Fourth of July.

Materials:
Photobucket
Butcher Block Paper
Tape
Red/Blue Paint
Bowls/Plates
Scissors
Sponge Rollers (Dollar Store,Craft Store,Teacher Store)


1.Tape butcher block paper to a fence, wall, or table.

2.Set out paint in front of the paper.

3.Invite children to explore materials.

4.Praise children for a job well done. :)

Extra:
Have children use a water tub to clean sponges.
(You end up with purple water-which is pretty neat!)
