Ever painted with marbles? If you haven't, you really should! It is a great, fun, loose way to paint. Perfect activity for young kids and even adults enjoy it. No art talent required! You get to let go of control and see what happens and no 2 paintings are ever the same.

All you need is:

1. a box (no lid needed)

2. paints

3. marbles (just a few, like 2 or 3)

4. paper (that lays flat inside the box)

5. people to enjoy it

6. Some good music

7. optional paper towel to clean marbles off between users

Step 1: Set it up

Easy Peasy set up:

1. place paper in box

2. choose 2 or 3 colors

3. squirt a little of each color in the corners

4. drop in the marbles

<p>looks amazing, wonder how it works with fabrics</p>
<p>hey you! good question. I'm not sure how well the marbles will roll through fabric paint cause its thicker than kids paints. Someone should try it out *wink wink nudge nudge*</p>
<p>Oh this looks super fun!!</p>
