Inside: One of our February art activities is this easy Valentine’s craft with foil. Seriously, you just need tin foil and my easy homemade paint (scroll down to get the recipe). That’s it!
Our toddler and preschoolers have had so much fun creating Valentine’s over the years. You might recall:
We are excited to add these foil Valentine’s hearts to the collection! An easy way to work on fine motor skills while using Q-Tips!
Fun and Easy Valentine’s Craft with Foil
What you will need for this easy Valentine’s Craft:
- Our homemade paint (scroll down for recipe)
- Mix as many colors of paint as you wish to use
- Cut tinfoil into heart shapes
Our homemade paint recipe that was used for this activity:
(Mix up this amount for each color you will be using.)
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1 tbsp salt
- Liquid watercolor
- Dish detergent
Combine flour and salt in a small container.
Slowly add liquid watercolors until you get a thin paste.
Make sure to keep stirring until it is smooth.
Squirt a small amount of dish detergent into the mixture. (This helps keep the paint from flaking off the foil, although there still might be a bit of flaking depending on how it’s handled.)
