Make your marble painting

  • Cut out optional shapes or use the paper as is
  • Place the piece of paper in a 9 x 13 cake pan
  • Place lots 3 or 4 different color blobs of paint on the paper
  • Place a marble in each color
  • Shake the pan so the marbles roll all over the paper
  • Shake the pan in different directions to see if you can create different shapes
  • Marvel at the amazing picture you have created

Talk about your marble painting

  • Does it look like anything to you?
  • What colors do you see?
  • Did any colors mix and make new colors?
  • How many lines did you make?
  • Do you see all the different directions the marble rolled across the paper?

Things to do with your marble painting after it has dried

  • Make a card with it! Use a folded piece of sturdy paper and paste the picture on the front or use the folder paper and start a new marble piece card.
