Going Marbles!

Ethan and I had loads of fun with this project. At one point, he got paint on his hands and instinct told him to lick it off like frosting. hahah It was funny! You had to be here. I wiped his mouth and he was good to go.
Supplies Needed:
White card stock
Red & white paint
Marbles (different sizes)
Box or cookie sheet
I cut a heart from card stock, squeezed some paint in a bowl, added the marbles and Ethan picked one up at a time. He thought that was too messy so he decided to dump the marbles into the box.
He kept pretending the marbles were racing! Fun!!
Cute, fast and fun!!

Have fun creating!

  1. cool activity for toddler...

    happy blogging,

    Toddler Activity

  2. Love this idea - I don't have any marbles in the house, but I suppose small rubber balls (of which I have many!) would work just as well, huh... Love the hand print hearts too! So glad you're back!

  3. i taught 3 and 4 year olds at head start for about five years...this was one of their favorite activities!!! it's also fun to use little toy cars with some black or brown paint...they love to make tire tracks...

  4. Cute idea - I have one for you for the spring - mother's day, You make a flower with their hand print. you color the palm one color and the fingers another color and then paint a green stem. You can use both hands put the right hand on the left side of paper and then put left hand a little lower on the right side so it looks like a two flower on the stem. I know its hard to describe but it looks so cute.

  5. awwww..just found your blog-so very, very cool! We do a ton of arts-n-crafts around here. so important!

  6. I just found your blog and LOVE it. We are going to try every single one of your crafts. I am so excited I don't know which to try first.
