Make your own heart stamps out of sponges to create this easy and colorful heart tree painting. A fun art project kids of all ages will enjoy!

MATERIALS – White cardstock – Printable tree template – Cellulose sponges – Acrylic paint in different colors – Pencil, scrap paper, and black marker

TOOLS – Scissors – Paint palette and water dish – Paintbrush

INSTRUCTIONS 1. Print out the tree template onto white cardstock. This is an optional step, kids can also draw out their own tree if they like.

2. Fold a piece of paper in half and draw out a couple of half heart shapes on the fold like in the photo below. You don’t want your hearts to be too big, so you might need to play around with the sizes.

3. Get your acrylic paint ready in a paint palette. I found that the sponges really soaked up a lot of paint so you want to make sure you have enough paint on your paint palette.

4. While you are waiting for the first color to dry, you can use another heart sponge stamp and stamp on some green grass.
