Marble art is a lot of fun, and if you use large enough sheets, you can use them for gift wrapping your Christmas presents. If you’re a little concerned about marbles with small children, then you can use non-toxic water beads instead. They do the job the same way, but if they are softer so they are a little more small-child-safe.
You will need:
- Marbles/water beads
- a large box, dish or roasting pan
Dip the marbles or water beads into paint and lay them down on paper.
Lift the sides of the tray or box and tilt it so that the marbles run around the page. Replace the beads as they require new paint, and fill the page with fun, bright colours.
Set aside to dry and soon you’ll have lovely coloured paper that you can use to wrap your Christmas presents.
You can also do this with glitter glue. It takes a while to dry, but it’s really pretty!
