Marble Painting for Toddlers

Marble Painting for Toddlers

Marble painting for toddlers is a great art activity, as it helps with the motor skills, while having fun, creating abstract art.  

Items Needed

  • Shallow Cardboard box or baking tray
  • paper or cardstock
  • tape
  • paint in various colours
  • marbles

STEP 1

First, prepare for marble painting by taping a sheet of paper or Whisper White Cardstock to the inside of the tray

STEP 2 

Add drops of painting into each corner, I added the primary colours (Red, Yellow Blue) as I knew they would blend well together.

…. Add your marbles

STEP 3

Now lift your shallow box/baking tray and tilt it this way and that so the paint-covered marbles roll around, creating interesting designs on the paper.

You can roll the paint covered marbles around the paper as little or as much as you like, depending on how you want your painting to look and how much you are enjoying the process.
