Art Time – Aluminum Foil Art

We did this for a quick and simple art project this week. We haven’t done much with foil, but as I was wrapping up something to stick in the fridge, I thought about how much fun it would be to use for art time.

So we got out the foil and some markers. I said it was quick and simple! blog pics 072

We talked about how shiny, almost like a mirror, the foil is; how smooth it is; and how interesting it sounds when it moves. M enjoyed using his regular markers, and then we tried the window markers. I preferred the window markers (yes, I was drawing a little bit too). M loves the white window marker because it’s so unusual to have a white marker, so he used that one a lot, but I think he liked using both kinds of marker equally.

Here’s his finished picture:blog pics 081

And here’s mine :) :blog pics 029 Can you tell I am just itching for fall to get here?! :)

Have a beautiful day! :)


  1. What a fabulously fun activity (and I have all the necessary supplies! Even better!). Maddie would love doing this. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Wow- your good! I cant draw like that at all.

  3. You guys always have fun and easy projects. I am curious - does M change his colors when he draws? Anna usually sticks to the same color in drawing or coloring until she is done. I am committed to drawing more together (even though I cannot draw) - just to show her what can be done with more than one color on the page.

  4. Awesome idea. I love your picture!

  5. Yay!!! I love it!! An art project I can do with a toddler, she can definitely scribble. I also like simple art projects that don't take a lot of prep work. Thanks, I am going to be trying this out soon.
