With the National Geographic Paint Marbling Craft Kit, kids can create beautiful, swirling paint designs that float on water, then transfer them to paper for framing, displaying, or gifting!
With the National Geographic Paint Marbling Craft Kit, kids can easily create 12 astounding works of marble paint art! First, they’ll set up a workstation by mixing their marbling solution. After the solution has a chance to sit for 6 hours, it’s time to add paints and create! Paint droplets float like magic on the water’s surface, allowing kids to use the included tools to bend, shape, and combine colors in unlimited ways. Once they’ve created the perfect design, simply dip the paper sheet into the water to transfer the design to paper. Once the paper has dried, kids will have beautiful artworks they can give as gifts or use for additional crafting activities. They can even frame their pieces and hang them on the walls at home!

What our experts think
Joy and excitement filled the room as our testers watched their artistic creations come to life with the National Geographic Paint Marbling Craft Kit. The comprehensive “Instruction and User’s Guide” allowed for guided and independent exploration of the art of paint marbling. This activity set combines artistic expression with problem solving and logical thinking. The children repeatedly wanted to experiment and create. They were highly motivated to make numerous marbled designs while learning about the science behind the creation through experimentation with various techniques, colours, pigmentations, and patterns. Creativity, fine motor skills, and following of directions are all fostered while engaging with this product. This kit is ideal for families, small groups, or independent play. Having multiple kits would also support an excellent STEAM classroom project.
