Marble Painting

We have been battling sickness in our house this week. Instead of doing lots of fun, creative things together, we've mostly been spending time on the couch watching videos, taking Tylenol, and trying to stay ahead of the laundry that three people with stomach flu generates....don't picture it.

So, blogging has been slow. But just to post something new, I've dug into my archives to find pictures of something fun. (So sweet to find pictures of my oldest wearing the clothes that my current Joy Schooler now wears. Time flies!) I decided to post this since I used it as an idea for making the stripes on our mammals last week.

Marble painting!

First, squeeze a little paint in a small container. Drop in a marble, and roll it around to coat. Repeat with several colours.

Then tape a sheet of paper inside a cereal box you have cut in half. Drop the paint-covered marbles in, and roll the box back and forth and watch the designs the marbles make.
The finished masterpiece!
