Today, Junebug requested to go outside after nap and to paint. I thought she may like to paint outside so we got to do both! We were confined to the porch since it was starting to rain, but we have a porch that wraps around the front of our home so we were protected from the rain for the most part! Awesome!
A couple weeks ago I got an amazing art print for my birthday from my amazing sister in law!! It came in a cardboard tube and I saved it to do marble painting!
We used some blue and white finger paint and some marbles (although I definitely recommend using round marbles vs the flat ones… I couldn’t find any small round balls that would fit inside the tube). I thought the blues would make a good rain painting, since it was raining out 🙂 I just dropped a small amount of paint onto the paper inside the tube and then had Junebug drop the marbles in. I closed it up for her and let her go wild.
Junebug shook, rolled and kicked the tube around on the porch. I helped her shake it a bit towards the end.
We opened the tube up and I revealed her painting. While she liked it, she remained unconvinced that she actually painted and insisted upon finger painting afterwards. What a kid. 🙂
Here’s a sneak peak of a post I’ll be making in a couple weeks, as it takes quite a while to make. Junebug had a blast helping me gather these dandelions out in the yard in the rain!
