Supplies Needed for Marble Painting
Instructions for the Craft
Place the white paper on the inside of the oatmeal container, so that it is flat against the sides. If you need to, use a little bit of tape to keep it in place.
Next, put a little bit of paint in each of the sections of the egg carton. Drop one marble into each of the paint sections.
Use the plastic spoon to carefully scoop the marble out of the paint, making sure that there is paint covering the marble. Carefully transfer the marble to the oatmeal container. Put all of the marbles in the container, and then close the lid tightly.
Holding the lid in place, shake it well for several minutes. The marbles will roll around the walls of the oatmeal container and spread paint splatters on the paper. The final result is a beautiful collage of colors that have a marbled texture.
