Painted Foil Hearts

Painting on aluminum foil is a classic art activity for toddlers and preschoolers. Painting on shiny foil with bright colors is inviting and fun.

To make this craft you will need:

  • paint
  • aluminum foil
  • cardboard (we used an empty cereal box)
  • paintbrush
  • yarn
  • scissors
  • pen
  • cardstock

Painted Foil Hearts

After gathering supplies, cut a heart template from the card stock. Invite kids to trace the heart onto a thin piece of cardboard. Cereal, cracker, or dog biscuit boxes are perfect!

Painted Foil Hearts

Cut out the heart, and tear a piece of aluminum foil into several long sheets.

Invite kids to wrap the aluminum foil around the cardboard heart, then paint over it with bright colors.

Sprinkle glitter over the wet paint, then allow the heart to dry.

When the paint is dry, invite kids to tape a loop of yarn to the back. The hearts look adorable hung on walls, doors, and windows! For added fun, pair this craft with a fabulous Valentine’s Day book!

Rainbow Overalls Dress

So I LOVE overalls, i adore them on the kids and I have a pair myself. I had this plans of drafting my own pattern of *proper* overalls because all the patterns I had seen weren’t really the style I wanted. I did a *fancy* version for my Bright & Bold lil luxe mini collection but I didn’t have any *traditional* ones.

and then, i don’t even know how, i found the I Dig Dungarees as soon as they were released. I didn’t even know the designer, but after buying them (right away) I really, really, recommend Made by Jack’s Mum (i haven’t tried any other patterns from MBJM but if you’re sewing for a boy I would really check out the others!). The attention to detail in both the pattern and the instructions is something I super appreciate when I’m trying to sew things that are more complicated than a pair of shorts or a shirt.
