Dollar Tree Marble Crafts

Dollar tree crafts

Who Knew some marbles and sharpie markers would entertain my children for hours. While my children and I were making our DIY Sharpie coasters craft we decided to color some of our marbles we purchased at Dollar tree. They have a few different colors, but we bought clear and blue. My daughter and I decided to see what bugs we could make with our marbles. Dollar tree craftsLove our little bumble bee

Despite how simple this project is my 7-year-old, 4-year-old and I were entertained for over two hours.

DIY Sharpie Coasters

Diy Sharpie coasters craft summer kids project

 Here is a  fun summer project you can do with the kids that doesn’t cost a lot and wont make a huge mess. I definitely had a lot more fun than my children did. Not only are these coasters so inexpensive to make they make perfect gifts for the holidays. For this project the only supplies you need:

  • Tiles ( Lowe’s .16 cents each)
  • Sharpie markers
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Straw
  • Clear Sealer
  • Cork board or Felt

DIY Sharpie Coasters I found my tiles at Lowe’s for .16 cents each. I bought a pack of Sharpies at JoAnn’s and used a 50% coupon. I also bought a sheet of corkboard for $3.00. craft2 sharpie diy coasters

Now time to get your coloring on

craft4 craft3I took a straw and dipped in rubbing alcohol and let drip on my coasters. If you add too much it will get messy and colors will run off. I suggest you help your children with this part. The great thing about this project if you don’t like they design the alcohol is making you can wipe it off and color again.craft10 craft0Tada! After your tiles dry after about an hour spray with clear sealer. Next I cut my corkboard and hot glued to the back of my tiles. You can also use felt.  craftt
