Supplies for Marble Heart Painting


  1. First, tape white cardstock paper inside of a box, plastic bin or tray.
  2. Next, add a few drops of different color paint inside of the container with the paper.
  3. Let your child drop a few marbles inside of the container. Tilt the container to move the marbles around to paint the paper.
  4. Once your child is finished, carefully remove the paper then set it aside to dry.
  5. Finally, print the heart template then cut. Use it to trace a heart on the painted paper. Your child can make a Valentine’s Day card with heart.

My boys love this type of art project. We listen to music and shake the container while dancing. It’s a fun activity for your little ones. I love that it’s a mess-free craft because everything is contained in the box, tray or plastic bin. This makes cleaning up less stressful.

I was able to share this art project with viewers of Great Day Live on Channel 10 WTSP. You can view the segment here and see how much fun I had with the hosts.
