Crushed Can Artwork

Collect three or four rinsed aluminum cans (no sharp edges), don some heavy boots, and stomp the cans so they're completely flat on one side. Then, it's paint time! Grab some acrylic paint, and let your kid have at it -- the wackier the picture, the better. Once she is finished, let the cans dry. Then, mount them in a shadowbox to display in your home.
