marble painting

E and I did this activity the other day (Paint a Marbled Heat Card), and it was loads of fun (no pics of that though).  So when B had to make a valentines box for his valentimes to be put in, I thought this would be a great way to do it.

to marble paint, you put your paper in a pan or something with sides ( we used a texas sheet pan, and a avon box lid)  then you dip your marbles in the paint, put them in your container and tilt your container so they roll around.  We did the same thing the second time, only we used heart cut outs. We then glued the full sheets to the cereal box, and glued the hearts over that (we also had some hearts that had no paint on them)

It came out pretty neat.  For better instructions click the link though..

even N did a shake or two!!

Hi, I am a stay at home mommy who is trying to stay sane with three very mischievous little boys, who are the light of my life. Oh, I also have a husband that I adore. I have recently started a weight loss journey (again). I do like good deals, but have not been as active as I use to be in couponing.. and lastly I am a flybaby who hasn't been flittering very well recently, but I am still trying.
