Hello! I just love letter crafts! Today I’m going to show you how to make this Y is for Yellow Sponge Stamping Craft that’s great for a Y letter lesson. Plus, you can use this same technique to make letter stamps for the whole alphabet. Here’s what you’ll need!

Y is for Yellow Sponge Stamping Craft
- Plain dish sponges
- Paper plate
- Thick paper (I used black for contrast, but you can use any color!)
- Yellow paint
- Thin black marker
- Craft knife
Start by taking one of your sponges and cutting it in half like shown. We only need a half sponge per letter. Use your black marker to draw your letter Y on the sponge. I recommend writing the letters big and blocky, so they’re easier to cut out!
Using a sharp craft knife, carefully cut out the letter. Then pop some yellow paint onto your paper plate, and get your paper ready. Now all you need to do is set your Y stamp into the paint, and press down gently to make sure it gets saturated with the paint.
I love using sponges for stamping projects! They just hold paint so well. Now just set your sponge down on the paper where you want the Y, and press down gently to make sure the paint transfers to the paper. Lift the sponge straight up, and you’ll see the perfectly stamped letter Y!
You can go ahead and stamp the letter Y as many times as you’d like!
Let your paper dry, and you’re all done! Make sure to wash out your sponge stamp with soap and water while the paint is still wet. You’ll be able to use the stamp over and over again! I hope you have fun making this Y is for Yellow Sponge Stamping Craft, and that it helps make your letter Y lesson even more fun!
