A few weeks ago Lucy and I had our first experience marbling paper. We both were so enthralled with the activity that we ended up creating for over an hour (and probably could have kept going if Lucy didn’t have to go to dance class)!
After having so much fun with our first marbling experience, I’ve been on the lookout for even more cool and unique marbling techniques to try with the kids. Here’s some marbling projects that are on our list to try next! (This post contains affiliate links.)
