Looking for a unique way to keep the kids entertained? Need a few minutes to breathe? Check out this easy aluminum foil kid's project.
The step-by-step video tutorial below is made by kids for kids.
In other words, get the supplies set-up, press play, and find something for YOU to do for 15-30 minutes while they create.
Let's get started...
- Cereal Box or a thin piece of cardboard
- Aluminum foil
- Fine point permanent markers
- Place mat or plastic table cloth
Now, you don't have to use 80's Glam Sharpies. *affiliate link
We just happen to think they ROCK.
Note: While the colors in this project are playful, they are not required. If you've only got a single black Sharpie, don't let the lack of variety stop your little one from doing this project. Classic zentangle is often done with just black!
Be sure to set-up the place mat or table cloth to ensure nothing special gets permanent marker on it.
Then press play!
Didn't she do an AMAZING JOB with the tutorial?!?
If you do this project with your child, please take a photo of their zentangle with your phone and share it on this Facebook thread.
By sharing your image, you'll be helping to keep this thread active and in parent's Facebook feeds. That means more kids will be inspired by your child's projects. My daughter loves seeing the feedback from other kids. By sharing your photo, you'll also be inspiring more kid-led video tutorials here on Let's Lasso the Moon!

THANK YOU for supporting creative thinking!
This post is dedicated to one of our favorite teachers, Deb Kirsch. Rose did this art activity during summer school. That same day, she came home and made a second zentangle here at home. She loved the project so much that she asked to make a video tutorial because she wanted to share with other kids. Thank you Deb for sparking her creativity.
If you have any questions or comments on the video (kindly) leave them below.
P.S. Is this the first time you've heard of zentangles?

Sometimes the girls and I just take our One Zentangle a Day book to the coffee shop and doodle. Love it!
