Marble Painted Apple Craft

The kids and I love to get the craft supplies out and see what inspiration will hit.  Today we were inspired by our bright red, yellow, and green paints to make apples.  But we did not just want to paint apples with a brush, so we used marbles.We had a lot of fun creating our marble painted apple crafts.
