|Duration||Under 15 minutes|
- Tempura Paint
- Tray with raised edges
- Put paper in the tray. Put several blobs of paint on a sheet of paper. Place several marbles in the tray and start moving the tray around: tilting up and down, side to side, rolling the marbles through the paint. Continue until you are satisfied with the result.
- An alternative approach to try is to dip the marbles in paint and then place on the paper and roll around. A much more subtle effect is achieved by this approach.
- Be warned - the balls have a tendency to fly out of the tray depositing paint where they land. Cover your work surfaces, and warn your kids to be gentle with the trays!
- You can use marbles, small bouncing balls, golf balls etc. With an oil pan and a beach ball, you can create a HUGE version.
