Fantastic Foil Forget-Me-Nots
Here's a simple activity that I do with my grief groups. During one of our meetings, we focus on a favorite memory. To save this memory forever, I have the students draw a picture of the memory on the back (non-shiny side) of the aluminum foil with a dull pencil. It's best to use thick foil and a dull pencil so the foil does not tear. This creates a 3-D effect on the opposite, shiny side of the foil. The student then flips over the picture and colors in the picture with sharpies to make a vibrant, colorful, 3-D picture. I wrapped the foil around an old thank you card, but any kind of cardboard to make it sturdy will do. Finally we used Popsicle sticks to frame the picture.
