Aluminum Foil Art

by Laurel Smith
Aluminum Foil Fun!   和omsMinivan
Here's a fun activity that keeps children busy and encourages them to use their imaginations. It's a great activity to do in the car on a long road trip, or just something fun and different to do on a rainy day. All you need is a roll of cheap aluminum foil and some creativity. 
Aluminum Foil Fun!   和omsMinivan Just give each child a sheet of aluminum foil and have them mold it into anything they want! Encourage them to use their imaginations. You might need give them a few ideas to get them going if they aren't sure how to begin.

Start by making different little zoo animals. See how many kinds of animals you can make.

Aluminum Foil Art activity   和omsMinivanGirls might enjoy making jewelry and playing dress up. Make crowns, headbands, rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings.

Make chains out of foil to hang little charms. Poke holes into the foil for added decoration. Think about whether you want to use the shiny side out or in for your jewels. 

Aluminum Foil Fun!  Shark Boy  和omsMinivanMasks are another fun idea. Kids can really come up with some interesting ones -- anything from superheros to carnival masks.  My son enjoyed making a shark helmet with a big fin on top of his head and matching wrist bands. 

You can also make hats, sun visors, body armor, "Wonder Aluminum Foil Fun!   和omsMinivanWoman" deflector wristbands, or even goofy eyeglasses. Maybe you'd like to make a fun little bowl for dry cereal or other snacks. Make tiny cups and saucers for a tea party.

Aluminum foil also makes good temporary Frisbees and balls. Or make a set of tiny bowling pins to knock down with a miniature bowling ball. Make a chess set. Make Star Trek communicators or Vulcan ears!

Toddlers can also participate in this activity, but they may need a little help. Be sure to watch them carefully so that they don't put any pieces in their mouths.

Aluminum foil modeling is easy and doesn't take any preparation. Clean up is easy too. Be prepared to use a whole roll of foil if they are really having fun!
