Marble Painting

My girls LOVE to paint! Sometimes, however, they get "bored" with the same-old paints over and over. That's when marble painting comes in!

Marble painting is a TON of fun and creates some pretty unique pictures. None are alike!

To do it with your kids, you'll need:
  • paints
  • marbles
  • paper
  • tape
  • cookie sheet (or shoe box for smaller kids)

Step 1)  Tape the paper to the cookie sheet or the bottom of the shoe box.

Step 2)  Dip a marble in paint then roll it around the cookie sheet or the shoe box.  Shoe boxes work better for younger kids because they have high sides.  Younger kids may have trouble keeping the marble on the cookie sheet.  For older kids, that's half the fun!

That's really it!  For some more fun, dip a few marbles in different color paints and roll them around at the same time.  See what fun paintings your kids can make!

What have you done to spice up your kid's painting fun?


  1. What a great idea.Sometimes I go blank when trying to come up with ideas to entertain my crew.I am so very happy I found your site!


  2. We haven't done marble painting since Christmas...we did red and cut out candy canes!

    Lately we've just been experimenting with mixing colors, and that's been enough to satisfy my little ones.

    1. Neat idea Brittney! We'll have to remember that one!
