Painting With Marbles

Who doesn’t like fun crafts that involve paint? Better yet, marbles!  This activity is not only fun and engaging to your child but also supports their growth in their creativity! As it is currently raining outside where I am, it seems to me like this would be a fun rainy day activity.


Before you get started you will first need to make sure you have the following items:

  • A box big enough to fit in a piece of paper
  • Different color paint
  • Paper
  • Marbles

Once you have these items, you are ready to get started!

First, place your paper into whatever box you will be using for this project. I happened to be using a big cardboard box which was able to fit two pieces of paper at once.


Next, add in your different colors of paint to the different corners of the box. (I did mine on the corners of the paper, but if I did it again, I would use the corners of the box rather than the paper.) Hooray for reflective practice!


Finally,the fun part! Let your child grab the box and shake it in all directions and see the cool trails the marbles will leave on their paper.


I hope you enjoyed this craft! Did you try it? I would love to see a photo from your experience!
