summer craft ideas (part three)

today's craft: tinfoil art
(idea found here)

what you need:

*  piece of cardboard
*  tinfoil (enough to cover cardboard)
*  sponge brush
*  tissue paper
*  glue
*  sequins and glitter

step one: wrap foil around cardboard.

step two: cut or tear several pieces of tissue paper.

step three: water down your glue a little bit in a cup.(we used clean yogurt cups) smooth glue all over foil with foam brush.

step four: lay pieces of tissue paper down and then add another layer of glue.

step five: while art is still wet, add sequins and glitter (or not).

and here are the finished projects...  
the adults participated too...
