Cut Out Stencils

Cut out the four squares on the pattern. Tape each square to a piece of cardboard. Cut along the dots until you reach the dashed line. Then cut along the dashed line to make your stencils. Tape the area where you cut the dotted line so your stencil has a solid outline.


Paint With Your Stencils

Place the stencils on a piece of blank paper. Show your child how to dip the sponge in paint and use it to dab the inside of the stencil.
