Marble Roll Painting

My kids went to a really fun Go Jetters themed birthday party at the weekend.  One of the activities was this fun marble roll painting.  You could just use a rectangle of paper but they created theirs on circles to make their own ‘Earth’.

You will need:

  • Paint
  • A few marbles
  • Paper
  • Tray or box lid (I’ve done this before with a baking tray but on this occasion they used a deep cardboard box lid which means there’s no washing up afterwards and you can just throw it away).

How to do the marble roll painting:

  • Place the paper inside the box lid or tray.
  • Squirt on some paint.
  • Drop on the marbles and then roll them around in the box or tray by gently tipping in different directions.
  • Carefully remove the paper and leave to dry.

This craft activity was much loved by the kids and kept the younger and older ones equally occupied and very focused.
