Make a Marble Run

Posted by Lynette - on

Boys can often be tempted to jump in front of their older brother’s games console rather than having some healthy fun with toys. One of the ways you can tempt them away from the TV screen is by introducing new and fresh activities that will inspire them to play.  If you can relate to this problem we have a great way to entertain your boys and girls this week – making a home made marble run.

While you can buy marble runs it can be a lot of fun to make your own. All you need is some thick paper tubes such as the insides of kitchen and toilet rolls and wrapping paper, some sticky tape, cardboard, marbles and colouring in pens or crayons.

Let the children create their runs by taping the tubes together and fixing them to pieces of cardboard and boxes. Allow your child make them as long as they want and help them to work out where they would like the marbles to go.  Once the tubes are in place it’s time colour in the run and to test it out with the marbles!
