Let the Good Times Roll

We ventured into the world of  marble painting today, I thought it would be a nearly mess free painting experience......I was very mistaken!  Don't get me wrong I LOVE a good mess but today I was up to my eyeballs in scone dough and trying to provide some independent crafting for the masses.  The basic premise is to place a piece of paper in a box top, and roll paint covered marbles around in it.  Seems simple enough right? Well, within moments we had paint covered marbles flying through the air and beautifully marbled kitchen floors:) Things did not go as planned (do the ever?), end results were a dozen burnt scones, one paint covered kitchen, and some beautiful art.  On the bright side the activity was a big hit for the children, my "I don't do art boy" even had a blast...must have been the marbles:) T's usual response to arts and crafts is "I do art mom...Lego art!".  * Note to self please reserve marble painting for afternoons with plenty of time and a lot of paper towels:)
