Supplies for Apple Marble Painting


  1. First, you need to download, print and cut the free apple template (see supplies). If you have a Cricut, find an apple image then cut.
  2. Next, tape the apple inside of a box, plastic bin or tray.
  3. Add a few drops of red paint inside of the container with the apple.
  4. Let your child drop a few marbles inside of the container. Tilt the container to move the marbles around to paint the paper.
  5. Once your child is finished, carefully remove the apple then set it aside to dry.
  6. Finally, glue the stems and leaves to the apples.

My little one had so much fun shaking the tray to move the marbles. It was the perfect mess free activity on a Sunday afternoon. I decided to add glitter to my apple but that’s optional.
