View Full Version : Marble painted baubles

30-11-2010, 10:02 PM
Did this with the children today and they loved it.

Cut out some round bauble shapes - to fit an old 7'' sandwich tin is a good size.

Use a couple of marbles dipped in paint of their choice and let the children roll them round in the tray to make a pattern.

Finish with a shake of glitter, if you like.

When dry, punch a hole in the top of the bauble, thread through some ribbon and hang up.
