Finger Painting On Foil

We received this really awesome box of craft supplies from and one of the items that they included was finger paint (along with lots of other goodies!!!)!! Thanks for being so Generous!!!  Be sure to check out their site with all kinds of craft supplies and ideas! I was a little apprehensive to use finger paint, since Cassie hasn't been a big fan of it in the past,  but this time she really enjoyed it! (Hooray....progress!)  I saw a post on Picklebums about Painting on Foil here and thought that we could finger paint on foil too!  So you can check out the fun C had.....she didn't want to stop until the colors were a muddy purple! Here is C using just her fingers....

Now C is using her hands...!!!!

Here she is really having fun!!! She enjoyed the shiny foil surface. It looks really cool too!  It will flake off when you let it dry. To prevent this... put a few drops of dish soap in the paint and it will help the paint adhere to the foil better!!! 

Finger Painting was a Success....for a girl who never wanted to get paint on her hands!!!
Here is the supply box sent:

We look forward to creating with more of the supplies that were sent to us!!!! 

Do you have any suggestions of what we could make with the other supplies pictured in the box???
(Let us know in the comment section below!!!)

  1. Finger painting on foil looks like lot of fun! We can make monoprints too!

    Craft suggestions from my blog

    Symmetry finger paint art -

    Rolling corn prints using finger paint-

    Button Magnets - DIY fishing game
    Bag clip to magnetic

    Pom-Pom Stamping

  2. for the magnets.. take old toys and glue them on and give her a board to make things with the magnets.. old cars, picture cards, even old dolls would work.. whatever you have around... pom poms, cardboard shapes.

  3. glue them on to cut paint chips for magnetic memory games.

  4. Ooh, this package looks like fun! Anna enjoys finger painting, but I don't :)

  5. Ahh I remember finger painting, so much fun and I should really get my kids to do this!
