We have always done our marble painting in an open box. Place the paper in the bottom and drop in some paint covered marbles. Let the kids move the box around so that the marbles roll around the paper. It’s fun. . .but my kid have done it A LOT, so I thought I would change it up a bit for the letter M.
what you need: Letter M ~ construction paper ~ marbles ~ tempera paint ~ plastic bag ~ small cups
Print, cut and glue the M to construction paper. Put the M inside a plastic bag. Add paint to little cups and add the marbles to the cups. I was planning on making this a mess free project so I gave Little M a set of tweezers. She used them. . . but in no way stayed clean! In between marble painting she grabbed the cups and said the one sentence I live to hear. “Lets see what happens. . .” So I was okay with the mess.
