You probably seen this activity done on lots of different blogs. Today the children really learned a lot from just this activity. Art: Exploring color change,using different mediums for painting. Language: Learning the letter name of M, learning the sound that M makes, learning new vocabulary. Practical Life: Learning how to hold a tray, hand-eye coordination.
I highly recommend marble painting. I did this as an individual activity. I thought maybe the activity would be done in five minutes. The children enjoyed it so much that the average time the child stayed engaged with this activity was twenty minutes. This is a work that I am going to have avaliable on the shelf.
