I've spent some time in labor & delivery getting checked out this past week since my due date is approaching, I'm having lots of contractions, and with my past pregnancy history it's likely that this baby will be born well before his scheduled induction on 9/21. Since I've been gone and the boys are back in school, we haven't crafted much this week. I decided that this week would probably be a great time to share a few of our favorite crafts from our past archives. Enjoy! :)
First, cut a piece of paper to fit in the bottom of a pan, box lid or other shallow dish. You may want to tape the sides down if you think that your little ones will be too interested in taking the paper out of the pan.
Make sure that everyone has on clothing that they can get messy in! My three-year-old was really into this project, but he was also really into taking the marbles out of the dish and cleaning them off over and over and OVER again.
Add a few large swirls of paint to your paper
Throw in a couple of marbles and let the kids slant and turn the dish to roll the marbles back and forth across the paint.
That's all it takes to create a new masterpiece! My little guy was especially enthralled with how the colors all swirled together.
