Kaleideum at Home: Marble Painting
Young children, much like cats, love to move objects around and observe what happens. Rolling a toy down the steps, watching a ball bounce, or testing if an object will sink or float — this is all science, and the more children can observe and play, the better they become at making predictions and inferences as they get older.
Get a marble and a shallow box (now you have something to do with all the Amazon boxes!). Have children observe the motion of the marble as you move it around. Then add a piece of paper to the bottom, dip the marble in paint and let them create a marble painting.
Marble painting can make the perfect Valentine’s Day cards for loved ones, created by their favorite artist. If you want to kick it up a notch and be a tech wizard, visit Kaleideum on Thursday, February 10, from 1-3 pm and use our Sphero robots to create a unique Valentine’s Day card. We’ll have all the card-making supplies on hand for you to create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
