Here in Manitoba, Canada, the days are getting colder and colder. We are heading into the deep freeze time of our year when we spend more and more time indoors and there is only so much Netflix you can watch in a day before you contemplate bundling up and heading out into your snow filled town. Creating art is a great way to break up this Netflix boredom. Sponge painting is an excellent way to get out of the indoor funk. Sponge painting is an awesome way to add some vivid colours to the dull winter landscape. This art projects shows how you can create a brightly coloured sun shiny day with an ordinary kitchen sponge and some paint. No need to go to the store for any supplies as long as you have paper, paint and sponges your morning or afternoon can be filled with creating masterpiece after masterpiece to light up the day. It’s great for all ages and doesn’t require any skill expect maybe cleaning ones (as sponge painting can get your hands messy)


  • paper
  • red, blue, yellow, grey or white paint,
  • a sponge


We suggest using 12×18 or 11×17 paper for your bigger background canvas. But printer sized paper works just as well it just creates just as stunning art.

Add some blue paint to the centre of the big piece of paper or the paper you are using as your background canvas, then using the sponge spread it to cover the whole page.

let it dry.

Complete the same process with the rest of your papers, with yellow and red to get that sun stained look

then optional grey and yellow ones. Let them all dry

Once dry cut a big circle out of one of the red and orange pages for your sun.

Cut strips for the sun’s rays out of the other red/orange and yellow pages. All different lengths and widths.

Optional: cut out clouds from the grey paper and glue onto your sky.
