Foil Painting Activity

Posted by teacher on August 25, 2016

What You Need:

  • Aluminum Foil
  • Cardboard 8.5" x 11"
  • Tempera Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Tape
  • Dishwashing liquid
  • Measuring Cup
  • Disposable paper cups
  • Teaspoon

What You Do:

  1. Help wrap the front surface of the cardboard with aluminum foil, wrapping and taping it on the backside.
  2. Set out one cup for each color that your child wants to use.
  3. Help her measure and pour 1/2 cup of tempera paint into each paper cup.
  4. Show her how to measure out a teaspoon of dishwashing liquid into a spoon. Encourage her to put one teaspoon of dishwashing liquid into each paint cup.
  5. Stir each cup of paint thoroughly. The dishwashing liquid will help the paint adhere to the foil.
  6. Now she can paint whatever picture she likes onto the foil surface.
  7. Allow the painting to dry completely, then hang it somewhere that everyone can enjoy it!
