Marble Rolling Leaves

This is a fun, open-ended sensory activity. Experiment with different colors of paper and paint, as well as different sizes of marbles or even small bouncy balls for alternate effects. Finished paper can be cut into any number of shapes and used for a variety of holiday craft projects.

Don't forget to send us a pic of your finished project! #ACMooreInspired.
