Toddler Theme Thursday

This week's theme is black and white animals. The girls had so much fun marble painting last week when we did our handprint spiders that I thought we would use the same concept for zebras.

The only supplies you need are a cutout of a zebra, black paint, a marble, and a box to shake it in.

Just dip the marble in the paint and drop it in the box with the cutout. Have your child shake the box back and forth the create stripes with the marble.

Here is Madelyn's finished zebra. We can't wait to see all the other great ideas that you all come up with!


  1. the zebra turned out really cute! we did cows once!

  2. I've been wanting to try the marble painting but keep forgetting to buy a marble. Looks fun!

  3. This is awesome! I used to do a similar concept when I was a Stampin' Up demonstrator for background cardstock, it was called marble-ing. You would put 1-3 colors (just a few drops of each) in a clear stamp box with a couple of marbles and piece of cardstock and shake it around to make cool background paper. I love this blog - full of great ideas for a mom with a preschooler!

  4. Thanks so much Rach. I have a lot of fun with my kids and love to share with others.

  5. This is a really cool way to paint---and the finished product looks so schnazzy! You have some great ideas here for little ones...thanks!


Thanks for visiting! Come back again!
