Aluminum Foil River and Waterfall

After seeing Filth Wizardy's tin foil river, It's been on my "to-do with L" list. We used heavy duty aluminum foil to make "rivers, waterfalls, and pools." He absolutely loved it! We floated flowers, small sticks, and even a bug accidentally floated down our river. What he liked most though, was making his own. It didn't matter that his didn't quite hold water as well as mine, he just loved constructing it and testing it out.
