I love painting with lots of different and unexpected things! Paint brushes are so passe ;)
We have painted with marbles before in our class and I thought it made a pretty pattern and would be a great idea to do during Spring/Easter to decorate Easter eggs!
Requesting (I want a marble; I want yellow, etc)
First came the reminder that we only *roll* the marble in the box...we do not shake the box! (we are not marble painting the floor!!).
We gathered our materials
Next, the students requested their egg (I want an egg) and put it into the box
Then, they chose their color (I want red, etc), scooped the marble out of the cup with the spoon and put it into the box
Then, the fun began! The kids rolled the marbles, making beautiful designs! The switched paint to add more colors.
And I really do think they painted beautifully!
