Sponge painting has been around for decades!
Yep, I am pretty sure my little Kindergarten self spent some time with stamping paint in my early years.
The set up is effortless, and so is the cleanup that follows. Toss the sponges in the sink, and they wash off in a flash. ⠀
Not only are colors are easily blended on the hearts, but the boys are strengthening fingers for pencil grip down the road. Again, my Kindergarten teacher in 1985 was onto something when she brought out the cut sponges.

As my five-year-old worked, he came up with a new sponge painting technique for each one. He took this very seriously and impressed himself as he twirled the sponge on the heart!
Same supplies, yet every single heart looks different! Just like these rainbow hearts, we did here.
