Marble Painting

Original Post: Play Create Explore

Our Story:
I sat down with my daughter at the table and taped a piece of paper onto a cookie sheet.  I squirted different colours of paint onto the paper and put some marbles onto the paper.  She rolled them around and created quite a masterpiece.  She even got her fingers in there a finished it off with some fingerpainting.

I'm not sure if it was the paint I used or what, but the marbles seemed to get stuck a lot.  The next time I were to try this I would maybe water down the paint so that the marbles moved easier.  And for sure make sure the kids are wearing paint shrits (or in our house, no shirts) because it can get messy if those marbles come flying off the cookie sheet.
