You can use whatever type of paint you want on this. We used Shiny Paint… Tempera paint with a little bit of dish soap.
I wrapped the tin foil around a piece of cardboard and let them paint away!
After they were done painting I offered them a Q-tip. This is great for making designs, shapes, letter recognition, etc.
They also did a little finger painting with them.
These dried wonderfully. A little bit of shine and texture to them. This one is hanging up on our playroom wall. :-)
