Marbling Paper

Right after we tried marbling eggs, we tried marbling paper with colorful origami paper (these pre cut squares are a life saviour! Saves me cutting from large crepe/ kite/ chart paper).

These is quite a simple activity with remarkable effects! We had leftover paint from the egg activity (dark blue tempera paint mixed in water in a shallow baking dish, and a few drops of oil swirled in). All he had to do was dip in paper one by one and leave it out to dry!






The oil created the marbled effect. Better to use dark color over light colored sheets, else it may not show at all!

Tip: perhaps you shouldn't leave your kid alone with it for too long. Or at least don't leave out the bottle of olive oil with him. Although it was a tiny bottle, he poured it all over the dish, easel, floor ...sigh. Had to wait for the maid to clean it up next morning!

  4. What a cool idea. I wonder, if you could make pieces big enough to use as wrapping paper. That would be so unique.

    Thanks for linking up to our Parenting Pin It Party x

    1. Hmmm, that's a good idea. But I'll worry abt the oil. this was My kids first time so he poured in a LOT of oil, maybe if it's just a few drops as intended, the paper won't be so oily even after drying!

    1. Because they look well lined up? I would've put them this way over my glass doors - would look beautiful with the sun light shining through them- if it weren't for the utter oilyness! Thanks Julie
