Door name plate craft for the little ones

Today, I just wanted to share a craft project I did in school with my playgroup kiddies.It was a cute door name plate for their rooms.

I first cut out rectangular pieces of cardboard and covered them with white chart paper.Then  I mixed some  blue and green paints and cut out sponge pieces and gave out one to every child .All they had to do was dip the sponge pieces in paint and paint the rectangular pieces with the sponge.

The result was something like this.

I gave an underwater theme to the blue ones…you may add sea-shells and sand as well to make it more realistic.
