When it comes to methods of painting that are as easy as they are fun, marble painting is both and compared to how some methods of painting can be a bit slow-paced is the opposite–it is an action-filled activity!
By engaging in marble painting your preschoolers can create a wonderfully abstract work of art that they’ll be proud to have on display!
Bright Beginnings Learning Center and Daycare in Sandy, Oregon did the marble painting pictured and you can do it too by ensuring you have the needed materials and then follow the directions below!
Materials Needed for Marble Painting
- A paint that spreads well such a Tempera or Acrylic
- A sensory bin, tray, or some sort of container that can be picked-up and keep marbles contained that are rolling-around
- Sheet of paper
- Plastic cups (optional)
How to Do Marble Painting for Preschoolers
First place your sheet of paper in your sensory bin/tray
Now squirt paint onto the paper
Place marbles in the container
Have students roll the marbles around so that they pick-up and spread paint
Optionally, you can have students dip the marbles in a cup full of paint and then roll them around instead of or in addition to squiring the paint on the paper as described in step 2.
Allow the paint on the paper to dry and then take the beautiful and abstract painting out to display or have preschoolers take home to their parents!
