Is it teething time for your little one?

Sometimes basic, everyday ingredients can be really handy for those spur-of-the-moment craft projects on rainy days, and this marble milk art project is a great example of this.


What you will need:

  • Almond milk
  • Liquid soap
  • Food colouring (various different shades for best effect)
  • Watercolour paper
  • Cotton buds or toothpicks
  • A long, shallow tray or dish to fit the paper




  1. Cut the watercolour paper (it’s stronger than regular paper, so will survive the dipping process) to fit smoothly into the tray or dish you are using.
  2. Pour three to four tablespoons of milk into the tray at a level that just covers the bottom.
  3. Add in a few drops of different food colourings onto the milk surface, followed by a few squirts of liquid soap.
  4. Once these all start to mix, take a cotton bud or toothpick and start to swirl the colouring around to create a marbled and colourful design.
  5. Before it mixes into one big messy colour, lay the paper lightly and flat on top of the liquid.
  6. Lift it out and set it aside to dry.
