Make ABC Sponge Stamps!

3.0 based on 12 ratings

What You Need:

  • Sponges (13 if you plan on fitting two letters per sponge)
  • Fine tip marker
  • Scissors
  • Acrylic paints
  • Paper bowls (one for each color of paint)
  • Paper 

What You Do:

  1. Help your child trace the alphabet letters onto the sponges using a fine tip marker. 
  2. Cut the letters out of the sponges.
  3. Pour the paints into paper bowls.
  4. Now your child is ready to create an alphabet masterpiece! Dampen the stamps with water and squeeze out any excess water.
  5. Have your child gently press the sponge stamp into the paint, and stamp away onto the paper. While he is making his chosen project, make sure to discuss the letters of the alphabet. Ask him to name the letters he is using, and encourage him to spell out any words or names he knows.

As an extension to this project, sing the “ABC song" together with your child and ask him to name objects that begin with each letter or sound.
