If you can’t find marbles, small bouncy balls will work as well. That’s we we ended up using because somehow all of the marbles we had disappeared. Marbles certainly work better due to their size and weight.

If you did this craft as a kid, then you probably already know the rest of the instructions. But just in case…

  • cut the black paper in a circle to fit inside of the cake pan

Actually, if you’re setting this craft up for a toddler or young child, once you drop the marble in the cake pan with the paper at the bottom; that’s when you hand it over to your child.

Then they can tilt and tip the cake pan as much as they want, as long as they don’t turn it upside down.

The tilting and tipping will create a unique spider web with the white paint.

Then, simply let dry and display!!
