I was trying to think of fun sponge painting projects for my toddler and I wanted to create one that was just a little bit cuter than a lot of sponge paint projects I was seeing. But I also had to keep it simple and easy! Enter this little balloon dog made from cutting out ovals from a sponge!
And I think this came out just about right. Except I still can’t convince my one-year-old to follow directions. Once I give him paint all sense goes out the window and soon paint is everywhere including all over his body. Seriously, painting his body is his favorite thing right now. However, I am still convinced this would be perfect for a slightly older toddler. And the prep is so quick – just cut a sponge into two ovals (you could even get away with using one oval size for all of it).
