Marble painting

We did marble painting with Defne a few days ago.This oldie but goldie activity will surely entertain any child -and adult :)-

a few marbles
different colours of paint
bowls for the paint 
a shallow tray or box
stack of paper to fit the tray/box

Place the paper in the tray.
Swirl the marbles in paint, then take them out and place them on the paper. And let the fun begin!
Tilt the tray to left and right, forwards-backwards and watch the marbles creating lovely strokes of paint.

a few minutes later:
