My grandaughter is 4 and likes to be busy ,so we fried marbles .They were popular i think in the late 60's--early70's for jewelry ,earrings ,necklaces ,etc.
Recipe for fried marbles-1obtain cheap clear or transparent colored marbles

2 place marbles in pan heat on low to med heat and roll around( no butter needed) heat 10- 20 minutes depending on marble size (make sure not to use grandmas iron skillet [:D])
3Dump hot marbles into ice water ,let cool ,enjoy your fried marbles ![:)]
