Thank you Ms. Haley for bringing us this activity!
This is a favorite painting idea to do with children of all ages, even toddlers because it's super easy, needs little material, pretty "no mess" and works on hand-eye coordination!
What you need:
1 - Paper
2 - Paint
3 - baking dish, box or anything rectangle shaped with sides
4 - Marbles or small ball(s)
What you do:
Place paper in the bottom of the box with a little tape on the back so the paper will not come up. Pour or squeeze some paint over the paper. Place marbles inside the box. Encourage your child to move the box around, up and down and side to side watching how the ball rolls over the paint and makes tracks. Then add more paint, as many colors as you want! Talk about how the colors are mixing and what new colors your two colors are making. Easy and educational fun! This is a great time to talk about how colors are made...yellow/orange make red!
