Press clear plastic wrap onto the paper and squeegee the paint around. Pull plastic off of the paper using a strong vertical pulling action. This will cause the paint to look like fire. Directions:¬† Let children lay a piece of manila paper in the box lid. Spoon out one to three small blobs of pint on the paper and place one or more marbles in the lid. By tilting the lid slightly the marbles will roll around through the paint and make “flame” designs. Add more spoonfuls of paint if desired to increase the color blending.

Directions: I give red long rectangles¬† and circles for wheels. If time permits I would give them scraps of paper to make a ladder. I like kids to be creative so I just demonstrate¬† and let them go. Directions: Cut 9’s and 1’s out of paper. Then glue them onto a piece of paper.
