Disappearing Sponge Prints

If you’re not into the mess of paint at the moment, let your baby “paint” with plain water. Cut up some clean sponges and put them in a shallow basin of water. Show your baby how to pick them up and squeeze the water out, then use them to make prints on a piece of paper, or even on a table or sidewalk.
