Marble Art

This past week I have been testing out crafts that I want to use with my moms club. Virginia has been loving it since we have been painting almost every day. I usually don't paint with her everyday because it is such a long process setting up and cleaning up. But I have found a solution to my problem. We have started to put the paint in one of breck's clear baby food tubs. This keeps the paint fresh, no more throwing away paint, and Virginia can open the containers all by herself. I have also started making Virginia clean up her own mess at the end. This has made a world of difference.

This time we tested out marble art. I had seen it on Pinterest and YouTube and seemed like something she would enjoy. It took Virginia a bit to get past the fact that her fingers were going to get messy. My clean freak, love her but am confused by the fact she will play all day in the play ground mulch, but hates getting paint and food on herself. 

Once we rolled the marbles in paint. We cut a sheet of paper to fit I side our tray lined with aluminum foil. Virginia dropped the marbles on the paper and went to town rolling back and forth. We rediped some of the marbles to get more color onto the paper. Virginia loved the whole process and asked to do it again. A sure sign that the craft was a success. I loved the fact she could do it all by herself as I fed Breck.
