Simple Starry Sky Preschool Art Project


Just grab three simple materials you probably already have in your cupboards, and you have a simple art project ready for your preschooler!

All you need is construction paper, foil, and tape!

I planned this fun and simple Foil Art project during our Playful Preschool Outer Space Theme, but would also make a great rainy day activity for when you are stuck inside, too!

I love that this Foil Art project is simple, easy, and child-led!
