DIY Sponge Doll

This Sponge Doll is very easy to make and kids will love decorating it.
DIY Sponge Doll
This is one craft that was very commonly taught in almost all schools during my childhood days. Every house hold had one or more of these sponge dolls. And last year during Navaratri Bombe Habba, doll festival I thought to give this a try with Putti. She loved playing with the sponge itself. 
DIY Sponge Doll
Put a rubber band in the center of the rectangle sponge and tighten it. Putti needed help with this. This divides the sponge into 2 halves. Add 2 small rubber bands to the top part such that it becomes the ears of the doll.

After this it is to your own imagination to decorate the doll. You can use a variety of items like spangles, buttons, feathers, beads etc. Use glue to stick them to the sponge.

What a super simple and fun idea!
