Marble Mania

Marble Mania Left Brain Craft BrainWhat exactly do you do with a bag of marbles other than play marbles? I found a bag of marbles on the side of the road when I was trolling for unwanted furniture.  (I’m planning a re-do of my laundry room into a new crafter/blogger/mama office).  No furniture that day but a really gorgeous bag of yellow and red swirled vintage marbles.  Now it’s a perfect time to round up some marble activities.

We tried some marble painting first.  The Babe loved every step of the activity from rolling the marbles around in paint, swirling them in the tray and washing the marbles off with a cup of water and basting brush.  She even turned it into a finger painting activity, too.the babe marble collageHere’s some more fun marble stuff to check out…
