paper plate apple

When I was in college sponge painting was “in”…  My girlfriends and I actually even sponge painted our lofts, my how times have changed, There is no sponge painting on any walls or beds in my house…  Except maybe for these cute apples the boys and I made!


Materials:  small or large paper plates, construction paper, red paint, old sponges…

I used the smallest paper plates I could find and the oldest sponge I had… I cut the sponges up into small squares and let the boys dip the red paint into the squares and paint their plate to look like an apple.  I tried to get one of them to make a green apple, but no luck!  Either way, I think the texture of the sponge makes the apple look good enough to eat!  HA HA

    I borrowing this idea this week so I thought I’d share a fun craft too:

    Pudding Finger Painting
    Materials: Construction Paper, Pudding, Food Coloring, Cookie Sheets

    Give each child a sheet of construction paper on a cookie sheet, chocolate pudding or vanilla pudding that you have added food coloring to and let them go to town with their fingers to create a sweet masterpiece on their paper. Allow paper to dry for 3 hours on the cookie sheet before proudly displaying. (Licking fingers is highly encouraged, if they aren’t sharing the pudding with others…)

    Have fun!
    Laura 🙂
