Foil Art

Foil Art

I love presenting my children with a few different materials and seeing what they do with them. It always amazes me to see what they create with their own imagination and no direction at all.

Ages:
2 - 9
Est. Time:
<30 mins

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. aluminum foil
  2. glue
  3. glitter
  4. glitter glue
  5. beads
  6. googly eyes
  7. cookie cutters
  1. I placed these materials on our art table while I did a few things around the house. IT must have looked like a nice invitation because without saying a thing both my children jumped in to create.

  2. It was interesting to see my five-year old use the cookie cutter to sculpt the foil, but my two year-old used the foil as a flat canvas.

  3. Emma used glitter and glue to make her little foil sculpture sparkle!

  4. She added eyes and beads and made the most beautiful piece of art work.

  5. I think it's so important to let my children explore and create freely on their own. This was a great way to get them engaged without directing them.
