CRAFTivities- Marble Painting The Earth

MARBLE PAINTING THE EARTH

This is a fast and fun craft! There's little mess unless your LO sticks their naughty little hands into it. :)
Warning! It's takes a LONG time to dry so you can't really enjoy it until the next day but the texture is so cool!



TOOLS:
  • Cardboard
  • Blue, Green, & White paint
  • Scissors
  • Marbles
  • Container/box for painting
  • Spoon
  • Glitter Glue (or glitter and glue)


MAKE IT A CRAFT KIT
(Eliminate time consuming steps so you can spend more time with your LO)
  • Gather tools
  • Cut cardboard in circle shape (no need for perfection, I free handed it)
  • Place the rest of the tools in the shoe box or in a plastic bag
Now it's ready to go when you are!





STEPS:
  • Place circle into container
  • Spoon or squeeze blobs of each color paint onto the circle in several spots
  • Place marbles into the paint
  • Shake around (not up and down!)
  • DONE!
