Fun Frugal Art- Painting with Marbles

This is a fun activity I enjoyed doing with my preschoolers. Tape a piece of paper in a cookie sheet or box lid. Put a small blob of paint inside the cookie sheet. Take a marble and roll it around the lid. It makes a pretty picture on the paper. This week we were learning about zoo animals so I cut out the shape of a zebra and we did this activity to paint the stripes on the zebra.

  2. Hopped on over from the homeschool hop. I am already following, but wanted to say hi. I have seen this activity before, but just using a piece of paper, not specially cut out. I think I will do this for the letter T, we could make the stripes on a tiger this way. We are on R now, so perfect timing.

  3. Hi! I just followed back! I just want to say that the marble idea is awesome!!! Can't wait to see more of your interesting ideas!!
