Counting to 100 Marble Art


This marble rolling art project is a great way for the students to practice counting to 100 by ones. It is also a fun project for the 100 days in school.

You can ask the students to choose if they want to roll the marbles 100 times or until they are happy with the results.

If rolling one hundred times I suggest using one to two marbles only and a large paper, bigger than letter or A4 size.

The results will vary according to the number of marbles used, amount of paint on paper, consistency of the paint, and the number of colors the child chooses to use.



  • Thick paper such as cardboard.
  • Tray, box, drawer, etc. Anything you can use to put the paper inside. Try to find a container that you can fit the paper tight inside.
  • Poster paint.
  • One to three marbles

Place paper in the tray and put paint on the paper.

Roll the marbles one hundred times.
