• Assorted Colours of paint
  • A couple empty cookie baking trays
  • Pieces of blank paper
  • a few empty containers
  • Bag of marbles


  1. Place a piece of blank paper on each cookie tray for each child.
  2. Separate different color paints - adding a little to each empty plastic container.
  3. Then place a few marbles in each paint container - in order for marbles to be covered in paint
  4. Then let the kids have fun! Using the marbles from each container to place on their paper (in the tray) and rolling it around using the tray to create amazing and colourful works of Marble madness.

  • This is a great idea. Something different created each time.

  • This has always been a favourite with kids! I used to love this when I was little. You never know what you’re going to get

  • Will definitely try this when my babe is a bit older.
    I think at the age she is at (one and a bit) she’d be more interested in putting the marble in her mouth!


  • How clever. So much fun, and mess, to be had with this one. Each one an original print


  • Great way to create your very own wrapping paper
