If you want a fun art project that kids will love, rolling marbles in paint is just the thing for you!
We spent Saturday afternoon carving pumpkins at a local art studio and almost missed the craft table on our way out the door.
And it would have been a BIG miss, because it was such a captivating activity that my daughter wanted to recreate it at home immediately and has asked for marbles and paint multiple times over the past two days.
I noticed big kids messing around with this too, so if you have older kids this may be worth a try. We did a similar project a few months ago, but this here marble painting project was a much bigger hit.
Supplies for marble rolling spider webs
- white tempera paint
- a few marbles
- a pie tin
- a piece of black construction paper cut to fit the tin.
This time with thick paint.
It’s a “spider web!” Kind of a stretch to call it a spider web, but if you’re in the Halloween spirit, why not?
After a shopping trip for pie tins and marbles, we got home and set up shop.
And rolled our little hearts out. Each piece took mere seconds to create, and I found myself cutting paper like mad.
One of these days we’ll get some friends together and make a super-sized marble painting like this!
Have you been painting with marbles too? What do your kids think of this activity?
