Magical Water Markers

Did you know that Whiteboard Markers can double as Magical Water Markers?! Follow the steps below to see your designs float in water!
  • Step 1Use the whiteboard marker to draw your design onto a plate or bowl with a smooth surface. Glass or porcelain work the best!
  • Step 2Place your plate or bowl on a waterproof surface in case of any water spills.
  • Step 3Allow your design to dry for a minute or two.
  • Step 4Take a cup of lukewarm water, then slowly and carefully pour the water onto your bowl or plate.
  • Step 5Your designs should float to the top of the water! You can even try transferring the designs onto paper by sliding paper underneath then pulling up out of the water.
  • If any of your design is stuck, give the plate or bowl a wiggle to help it float!
