Foam is an easy and versatile material that can be used in the classroom. It’s also a great way to engage students in art projects and provide them with an opportunity to express themselves creatively. In this blog post, I will share some ideas using foam as well as how it can be used with other types of art materials such as yarn and beads. I hope you find these tips helpful!

Need a unique way to get the kids excited about a project? Try using foam.

The right materials are the key to creating any art project, and foam is one of those versatile materials that can be used in a variety of ways. Foam can be molded into shapes, textures and effects that will help you create different types of projects. It’s also fun to work with!

Let’s say you want to make a crown for your child’s birthday party. Using foam sheets and some glue or tape, you could easily create something like this:

Foam is a versatile art material that is engaging and easy to use. Here are some ideas for using foam in your classroom:

  • Foam can be cut easily with scissors or a craft knife. This makes it ideal for younger children who may be too young to handle sharp tools.
  • Foam can be painted with acrylic paint, watercolor paint, or tempera paint (although tempera may not stick as well). If you’re using an airbrush, try spraying on a layer of clear coat first so that the color will adhere better; then spray on more coats of your chosen color(s) until you reach the desired depth of coloration. Be sure to let each coat dry completely before adding another one! Don’t forget about all those little fine details like eyes and mouths—you’ll want them looking nice too!
  • Foam can also be glued together with hot glue or craft glue if you want something more permanent than painting it will give us.* This works great if we want two pieces coming together but don’t want them touching each other directly due to their different shapes/sizes/etcetera.”

Foam helps create an eye-catching effect that is fun and can be used in a variety of ways.

Foam can be used with other art materials to create unique art projects. Some ideas include:

You can use foam to create a wide variety of projects. It can be used to make sculptures, sculptures that are then painted or decorated with other materials (like glitter or paint), and even entire rooms made out of foam! The possibilities are endless.

Using Foam, yarn and glue to make buttons


  • Foam in different colors
  • Yarn in various colors (the thicker, the better)
  • Glue that dries clear or white (you can use hot glue, or even just regular glue if you don’t mind it staying tacky)

How to make them:

  • Cut out your shapes from foam. You can use any shape you want, but I recommend something with a little more depth than a simple circle so there’s something to hold onto when you’re wearing it. If you have time and space available, carve out each button completely and then paint on details with acrylic paint once they’re dry! Otherwise you can simply color on top of the foam with markers instead.
  • Cut off pieces of yarn and thread them through holes made by sewing needles or other sharp objects into one side of each button; make sure these are evenly spaced apart so that when someone wears one they won’t look like all their buttons are falling off at once! For example: for two rows of eight buttons each (16 total), use four needles per row spaced evenly apart from one another so that there will be two stitches per hole left open on either side after being sewn shut halfway through being inserted into place; then sew through both sides together “upstream” from where those threads come out–so if we take our example again where four needles were used per row instead which makes 16 total buttons altogether then sewing up stream means sewing only along one long seam line—not both short sides because it won’t work well otherwise! This prevents any overlapping problems later on down road when trying out different combinations & permutations possible while designing

Using foam to print designs on paper

Foam can be used to print designs on paper. To do this, you will need:

  • Foam of any shape or size
  • A printer that prints onto paper (or a laser cutter)
  • Any type of inked printing plate or design for the foam (you can use anything from a photocopy machine to a laser printout)

Creating flowers by stringing beads onto Foam

Another great project is to use foam to create flowers. You can use this for your jewelry or you can make a flower for your hair. Foam is easy to cut and shape, lightweight so it won’t be too heavy for kids to hold, and easily accepts glue or paint.

Foam is an affordable way to encourage art in your classroom and you can find it at most craft stores or online.
