Painting with Marbles

Here is one of those rainy day activities that can keep your toddler engaged while still having fun.  My little guy loves painting, so naturally I knew he would love this.


  1. Start with a shallow box – a lid to a file box works perfect!
  2. Line the box with craft or construction paper as the canvas
  3. Drop blobs of different colored paint all over the canvas


4. Put a few marbles or balls into the box, and let your toddler roll them around to create their masterpiece!  ** I do not have marbles in my house, so these were the next best thing I could find.  Next time, I would use a bit smaller of a ball to get more paint splattered around. IMG_6865


5. Hang your masterpiece!
