marble painting

It was a rainy day today which makes for the perfect opportunity to paint.  I can not recall if I saw this idea somewhere but needless to say, it is a fun idea.  My little girl is 2 and loves to paint and thought showing her some different ways of painting might be fun, so out came my childhood marbles.  

I taped a piece of construction paper to the bottom of a cake pan, I wanted to make sure that the marble would not roll on the floor.  Next  I painted a marble with some washable paint, make sure that the paint is not too runny otherwise it can be a bit of a drippy mess.  Now let the marble roll where it may.

The 'artwork' in process. We ended up using lots of different colours and I just love the way it turned out in the end.
