Pumpkin Marble Painting

Marble painting!  When I saw this idea over at 1+1+1=1, I didn't understand it at first.  All I knew was that the craft included marbles, and that was good enough for me.  Merrick is still crazy about marbles.  

This was a great craft for our Pumpkin Unit Study.  And, by "Pumpkin Unit Study," of course, I just mean that pretty much every thing we did in October had something to do with pumpkins (and Halloween).  

For directions and a pumpkin printable, visit 1+1+1=1.  

This was the simplest project.  By some miracle, I had some Crayola washable paint.  I simply put the fall colors on a paper plate, dropped a marble in each color, and we were off!

Check me out!  I'm painting with marbles!

Seriously?!?  Does it get any cuter than this?  

One thing I loved about this craft was that the twins could join in on the fun.

Scout loved marble painting!

I love how Scoutie is looking over, making sure her brother is getting it right.

Here are the finished products!  I let the twins finish one (the bottom one) together.  Fun, fun, fun!

    Guess what is on our agenda now for the day?
