3. Sparkly Icicles
Whether you’re in the throes of winter, or just want to remember what cold feels like in the dead of summer, these sparkly icicles are a fun craft! Aluminum foil is painted and topped with glitter, then hung with simple thread. I bet the light would reflect beautifully from some of these when hung in a window!

4. Foil Printed Fall Tree Art
Budding artists will thoroughly enjoy this tree art made from a ball of foil. Perfect for little hands still learning dexterity, a rolled ball of aluminum foil is dipped in paint and then tapped on paper to form the leaves. Tiny fingers can draw out the trunk, for a truly sweet and amazingly artistic fall tree. We’d imagine you can also change your paint colors and make one of these for any time of the year!

It’s as simple as finding leaves, laying them under a piece of foil and gently rubbing with your finger! Your kiddos will be amazed at all the detail that will show through and it provides the perfect background for painting. Or just leave plain for a fantastically frameable piece of art.
