Thank you to Kate at cheapcraftymama.com for this great idea! My son had a blast with this activity!
It was a beautiful day so we decided to do some Marble Painting outside, however this would also be a great rainy day idea! Our neighbor kids came by as we were finishing and asked if they could come back and paint with us tomorrow; definitely a hit! There are so many different times of year/holiday ideas to use this technique for :presents, to make wrapping paper, for homemade birthday cards, etc.
- Washable Paint
- Non-breakable baking pan
- A Few Marbles
Directions for Marble Painting:
1. Place the paper in the bottom of the cake pan and secure it to the bottom with a few pieces of tape.
2. Place a few small “blobs” of paint on the sides of the cake pan/paper. I used three different colors and placed them on both the right and left sides.
3. Drop the marbles in the pan and roll them around the pan in and out of the paint to create your painting.
4. When you are finished, lay the pan down and let it completely dry before you remove the paper.
