If you follow along the blog you know I’m all for activities that take minutes to set up. They are real and doable in amongst the chaos that comes with having a family. This activity would be fantastic in classrooms but my aim is to keep things realistic and simple at home!
What you need:
* A box or shallow tray with edges
* A handful of Marbles
* Paper Plates
* Plastic Spoons
How to do it:
1. Prepare paint in paper plates and add a few marbles and a plastic spoon to each plate.
2. Line the box or shallow tray with a piece of paper
3. Child scoops marbles into the box and tilts it around to make the marbles paint all over the page!
It’s that easy. It’s fun, great for mixing colours and talking about the different patterns we can make. It’s also fabulous for making wrapping paper or a canvas!
