Sponge Painting Trees

We did a simple but pretty art piece this week.
Cut a sponge into a triangle then into three pieces;
small, medium and large.
 Dip the sponges into green paint and press onto the paper,
 creating your tree.
 We used q-tips dipped in yellow, white or red paint to decorate the tree and background.
 I like using q-tips because the size is right for the children to grasp
and to limit how much paint will go on at one time.
This child added a few more large sponge prints to make her tree taller.
