Letter M

Hello, for the letter M this week

we did Marbolized Mm

the idea was taken from

who does an awesome job with giving you

details and the science of the marbolizing in her blog :)

We started by using this M worksheet

Or here is another option :)

We used one cup for each color and put in each cup

1 tbsp of cooking oil
1 tsp of food coloring
mixed really good with a fork

Then have a cookie sheet ready

with a little water, enough to cover the bottom only

I have a really old one for all my crafty things

so I covered it with aluminum foil

to see how the colors swirl

You can use a dropper or just a little spoon

like we did here

and carefully place a little bit of color

one at the time

at the beginning they will look like drops only

but here is the fun for the little ones

show your child how to draw

swirls, curls, doodles

in the water with a fork

mixing the paint into the water

for different patterns

here is one of the patterns that we did

mostly pink since that's my daughter's favorite color
You can see the finished project
at the beginning of this post
using the letter Mm worksheet
