Art time with Ayden: Sponge Painting
Just the other day I shared the benefits of stamping for toddlers. In case you missed it, you may read all about it here. Today, we explore further on stamping with a new paint tool – sponge.
Ayden loves Koi fish so I thought let’s make today’s art activity more interesting by letting him paint his very own koi fish. I did this same art activity with big brother Ethan back in 2012 when he was 5. It is now Ayden’s turn to paint a koi fish
I drew a template for him.
Koi Fish Template
And helped him cut two templates ‘Ying and Yang’ style and numbered them 1 and 2.
Ayden did the rest from here. Watch this video of Ayden sponge painting a koi fish:
It is a pretty simple art activity but the end result is unbelievably beautiful.

Home is where MY heart is.
I am a mother to two boys; Ethan and Ayden and a wife to Darling William. I'm a stay at home mum who blogs to break the monotony of life and to avoid feeling jaded. Would love to get to know all the Super Mommies and Daddies and Babies or Singles out there with the hope that we can learn more from each other. Most of all, I am a happy person, and I hope YOU are too.

Wow!! Very nice.
And very simple too. Try this with Jamie. He’ll love it for sure :)
This is really a beautiful Art using innovative ideas! Thanks for sharing this.
You are welcome. I hope to inspire more parents to do art and craft with their little one.
I’m so surprised! Very nice piece of art.
Almost couldn’t believe it was done by a kid haha
But once you found out how simple it is to do this… hahahaha. Close eyes oso can do :D
He did that? Wowwwwwwwww!!!! Step aside Picasso!!!
He looks so cute wearing that cap the other way round. :)
I just cut his hair too short so had to give him the cap. Thank goodness you thought he is cute instead :D
Ayden does craft so well. He can align template 2 to the shape of the koi fish from template 1. Fun activity and the result is nice too.
Yes, I guess regular practice does help hence he is able to do this. It is actually very simple but if a kid is unable to align the template, the parent can always give a helping hand :)
