Now let your child try his/her own design using Q-tips.

Next cut out a shape using a thin sponge. It can be a square, circle, rectangle or heart shape.

Dip the sponge on to the painted sponge and then on to the paper to make a design.

Have your child repeat this activity using his/her own creativity.

Take several sponges and on each one place a thin layer of paint in different colors.

Use objects such as : buttons, shells, leaves, string, lace, an old tooth brush, etc.

Allow your child to experiment with all these objects to create his/her own designs.

Encourage him/her to add words to his/her stamp designs.
