Foil Painting

Foil Painting is an interesting & easy art for kids. They will enjoy mixing colors and experimenting on the metallic sheet. It creates a shiny shimmery effect which looks cool.

What you need

  • Paint & Brushes
  • Aluminium Foil
  • Cardstock or any Cardboard (optional)
  • Dish soap (optional)

How to

  • Wrap the cardboard with the foil and tape on the back side.
  • Let your kids enjoy painting on it.

We used washable paints & after the paint dries it peels off the foil. It was ok with me, because we dint intend to save the painting. We just cleaned the foil with water and kept reusing it. If your planning to save the painting, just mix some dish soap to the paint so it adheres to the foil.

Miss A(almost 3yrs) & Miss D(22 months) enjoyed painting on the foil. They always enjoy painting. It was interesting for them to explore the new surface and mixing colors using the paint brushes. To make it more fun, you could also cut different shapes (crown, star, fish, robot – just anything) on cardboard and wrap the foil on it or just cover your table or easel with foil and let your LOs paint. Have fun painting! 😀
