Fun With Dollar Store Sponges

Did you ever play with sponge capsules as a kid?  It was fun to see what animal they would magically become.  The other day, I picked up a package of them at the dollar store to use as paint sponges.

1.  You just need a shirt, some paint, hot water, and the capsules.
2.  Drop the capsules in hot water and watch them grow.
3.  Let the sponges dry then dip them in paint.
4.  Press the sponge with paint onto your shirt.

Here's how my dress turned out.  :)
