Yellow and red tempera paint in small cups or bowls
Manila paper or folders
Let children lay a piece of Manila paper in the box lid. Spoon out one to three small blobs of paint on the paper and place one or more marbles in the lid. We didn't have any paint so we used catchup and mustard! 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.
