How to Make a Foil Printed Tulip Craft for Spring
Grab your supplies.
Tape a piece of aluminum foil to a covered surface using painter’s tape. Invite your little one to use a paint brush to paint the aluminum foil.
When choosing colors to use to paint your tulips, choose colours that are close to each other in the rainbow so that as they mix the colours (and they will mix the colours) they don’t turn into brown. We choose pink and purple and yellow but I quickly removed the yellow because it started to turn brown as she painted. Try pink, purple and white or yellow, orange and white.
Use the tulip template the cut out different shaped tulips to paint. Cut them out of white printer paper and then lay them on they foil in the paint. Gently press down and then pull them off and set them aside to dry.
Time to Build your Tulips!
Cut out a stem or leaf from green construction paper. Or if your little one is loving the foil painting. Grab a new sheet of aluminum foil and paint that one green. Take a sheet of white paper and lay in the paint. Remove it and set it aside to dry. Once dry cut out a stem and leaf.
On another sheet of construction paper, glue the tulips to the the top of the stems (either construction paper or foil printed). Add as many flowers to the sheet as you like.
This activity is good for kids 2 years and up. My kids are 3.5, 3.5, and 7 year old.
