Halloween Ball Painting

Read next

Looking for a toddler friendly art project to add to your Halloween decor? This oversized version of marble painting is a super fun and easy way to create a spooky web-like design.


• Large box, pan, or even a kiddie pool (if you want to go really big).
• Large piece of paper
• Black and orange paint in separate bowls
• Medium to large ball or balls (golf ball, tennis ball, etc.)


• Place paper in box
• Drop balls in paint and get them nice and covered
• Transfer balls to box and roll around- it’s that easy!
• If you have a large box or kiddie pool, you may need a few children to hold it up.
• Everyone can work together to move the balls around in the box, creating a Halloween-inspired work of art!
