2 Quick and Easy Hedgehog Art Projects for Kids.

Oodles (almost 3yo) and I had alot of fun with these two little paint projects this morning.Since we made our hedgehog collages last week she has been eager to do some more hedgehog activities and these are what we came up with.

What we used:

  • paint
  • pot scrub sponges (with rough side and sponge side)
  • paper
  • paint brushes

  1. Using the sponges we painted a mound shape
  2. To make the spikes we used the rough side of the sponge and dragged it up through the paint
  3. We added a face and snout with our brushes as well as little feet
  4. Using the edge of the sponges we added grass and autumn leaves to the ground.
