Intro: Marble Painting
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)
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
Step 2: Shake It Up!
Go for it! Just tilt, rock, or shake the box to roll the marbles around.
The marbles roll through the paint and spread it around.
Play around with color combinations and see what makes the best pictures
If you have a lid on your box, you can close it and shake it up really good.
Try starting with a few colors and shake it up, then add some different colors on top and go again.
Cleaning off the marbles between users is recommended.
