Homemade Marble Run

ages 3-6


Supplies

The inner tubes from paper towel and toilet paper rolls, masking tape, paint, markers, or crayons

Activity Detail

The cardboard tubes from paper towel rolls and toilet paper rolls can be used to make great marble runs. Decorate the tubes with paint, stickers, markers, or crayons. Use masking tape to attached them in any direction you like, forming a multi-level structure of any height. The tubes can also be cut in half lengthwise to create open chutes for the marbles. At the bottom of your structure, secure the tubes with masking tape to a large piece of cardboard for stability. To catch the marbles, add an egg carton at the end of the chute. Drop your marbles in the top and watch the fun!

What a great way to save money - some of the marble runs I've seen can be pretty pricey.

These tissue rolls can also be used for various holiday treats .Put smallpieces of wrap candy inside,wrap the roll with Holloween paper,leave paper long enought to have about 4 inches on each end secure with a rubber band.Slit the ends with sissors. This is a project the whole class can do Each child can make one for classmates. This a counting project to count the pieces of candy. Retired Art Teacher
