Marble Painting Craft
This is a fun and easy painting project for people of all ages.

  • Age Guideline: 3 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 10 minutes + (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.


Materials Needed:

Trim a piece of paper so it fits snuggly into the cake pan. Put a few drops of paint on the paper. Place a marble into the pan and tilt the pan in different directions so the marble rolls around, through the paint. The paint will stick to the marble and end up drawing lines on the paper as it rolls around.

With this project you can experiment with different amounts and colors of paint. You can also experiment with different colors of paper. Try using 2 or 3 marbles instead of one. There is no right or wrong way to do this project, be creative and have fun.
