We pulled out the paints yesterday for some more Rainbow Week fun! There are lots of fun ways to paint a rainbow. We chose to do this Rainbow Sponge Painting Art Project based on a pin I had saved from Kids Craft Room. It is super simple and you only need a few supplies.
Here are the supplies we used:
- Acrylic Paint (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple)
- Scrub Sponges (We found a 6 pack at Dollar Tree.)
- Paper (We used Cardstock.)
An adult will probably need to do this first step. I squirted a little of each color paint onto the sponge. Then I gave it to the child and told them to go from one side of the paper to the other.
In both cases they did have to do it a couple of times to get the full effect of the rainbow. They were so proud of their rainbows! It really made a beautiful picture.
Of course we didn’t stop there! They continued to add to their artwork by painting more with the sponge and even doing a little finger painting. You really can’t go wrong when your working with a rainbow of colors!
Didn’t they turn out amazing! This was such a fun project that I think anyone would enjoy! If you are looking for a bright and cheerful process art project, this is definitely for you.
