* Mom Would Never Let Me Do This At Home Camp: Giant Marble Painting Outdoors with Kids!

During our VERY Messy
"Mom Would Never Let Me Do This At Home!" art camp last week,
we did Giant Marble Painting!

The kids had so much fun with traditional marble painting in my Rainbow Camps
and during Exploring Great Artists Camp (as an ode to Jackson Pollock)

We lined the bottom of our two wading pools with art paper, and the kids dunked
old golf balls and baseballs in trays of  different colored paint.
Then they dropped them in the pools and used team work to roll them around.

It was great fun  and  the projects turned out really well.
The golf balls made a cool texture on the papers.

We did a large group marble painting on a canvas but ours wasn't giant like yours. What a cool activity. And baseballs? That's just great.

We blogged about it, too!


Also, just wanted to say that I shared your blog with lots of my preschool teacher friends and they have expressed their overwhelming LOVE for your blog! Thanks for the inspiration!
