Finally got around to writing this post about large DIY winter marbles. They are a lot of fun to make! And the most affordable project I’ve created in awhile. The biggest tip I can offer is to “hold on to your very large marbles!” We accidentally let go of one and red water went flying all over the kitchen. Haha, it’s a fun and quick project to do with the children though and they look so nice outside against the white snow.
These are really easy to make:
Add a few drops of food coloring to each balloon.
Put opening of balloon around the hole of the sink faucet.
Hold balloon on the faucet and turn on a SLOW stream of water.
When balloon reaches desired fullness, shut water off.
Remove balloon from faucet while holding the opening part of the balloon firmly.
Twist balloon opening around and tie.
Place outside or in freezer until frozen solid.
Make a circular area in the snow for the balloon to rest so the marbles come out circular.
Use scissors or fingers to break balloons away when your large marble is frozen.
I’d love to see the colors you create! If you make different sizes, you can stack them up for a cool snowman! Show us your large marbles by posting pics on our Facebook page!
