Marble Painting

   P is for paint and M is for marble. This activity was originally scheduled for letter m week, but we had so many other things going on that week that we did it during letter P week instead. It worked out because p is for paint. This is a fun and easy painting project that is relatively mess free. How often can you say that about a painting project? 

Here's What You Need:
A box lid or shallow container like a baking pan 
tempera paint

Here's What You Do:
  1. Tape the paper down inside of your container.
  2. Dot your paint around the paper. (Small dots work better.)
  3. Put 4-6 marbles into your container and tilt your lid at different angles so that the marbles roll around.  
  4. Take out your marbles and let your project dry. Then take out your new masterpiece.
