1. Place sheet of paper into bottom of tray and then use ice-block sticks to drop a generous blob of each colour onto paper at one end.
2. Carefully place marbles onto paint.
3. Start gently tipping tray from side to side and backwards and forwards, and marbles should start to roll - if they stick, give them a helping hand.
4. When you’ve finished, carefully remove marbles and leave paper to dry.
Marble Run tips
Using more marbles will give you a different finish.
Try cutting a shape out of the paper once the paint has dried.
