Marble Painting

  • Paint: fingerpaints or Crayola washable kids' paints work well.
  • Small cups or bowls: one for each color you plan to use
  • Box: shoeboxes or any box with a lid (I did not use a lid and it was fine)
  • Paper: small enough to lay flat inside the shoebox
  • Marbles or small balls
  • Tape
How to make:
  1. Cut a piece of paper small enough to fit inside the box.
  2. Tape the piece of paper to the bottom of the box. The best way to do this is to make a circle out of the tape, with sticky side on the outside. Put the tape on the bottom of the box and place paper on top of it.
  3. Pour a small amount of paint into the cup or bowl.
  4. Place 1 marble or ball inside each cup of paint.
  5. Ensure the marble is covered with paint.
  6. Place 1 marble on top of piece of paper.
  7. Put lid on the box.
  8. Shake the box.
  9. Remove lid and marble.
  10. Repeat steps 6-9 until all colored marbles have been used.
  11. Set aside to dry.
