While marble painting is nothing new to the preschool art world, specifically applying this as a fall project came from The Moffat Girls. The project is really simple and (mostly) mess free!
Just plop a few drops of paint right on the paper then SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE!
Older Munchkins were able to hole both ends of the box themselves while younger ones needed a second set of hands to support them.
I love how this became a sensory experience- hearing the balls run across the box, feeling the weight shift as the balls rolled, and watching the paint as it dispersed around the paper, etc.
Each piece of art came out unique and beautiful.
After the paint dried, I took The Moffat Girls Advice and make thankfulness leaves. While the boys are still too young for cutting and tracing, I was happy to do this part myself as they napped.
