This weekend it was pouring with rain, so still dressed in our pyjamas, we got the jar out and pulled out the marble painting card.
All you need:
Paper or card,
A baking tray
We used the brown paper that I had got from work, and cut it down to the desired size, and put it into a baking tray.
Next we squirted in some splodges of colourful paint and then we dropped in the marbles.
Then Rachel and Jack took it in turns to have a go rolling the marbles in the paint.
Sometimes, the tray needed a really good shuggle (is that even a word?!) to loosen the marbles that got stuck in the paint.
And it is worth protecting any tables/floor where you are working, with plastic sheeting or newspaper, as Jack kept tipping the marbles out of the tray!
The overall effect was a great marbled painting.
Once again this is another great way to decorate the massive roll of brown paper that we have, to use for wrapping paper for gifts!
