Marble Run!!!

Here is a quick and cheap toy you can make your kids. When I mean cheap, I actually mean free. All you need is a shoebox lid, straws, glue gun and a couple of marbles.


 Cut up the straws to create a maze. Glue the straws to the lid with the glue gun:


Add some marbles and play. I made this about an hour ago and my son is still entertained by it. I give it an A+++++!

  3. This is definitely a game that I could make. I have all the items needed at home already. Hopefully, it can keep my child entertained for awhile. Plus, she's old enough that she could do this as a little craft. Thanks for the idea! Thanks for visiting my blog also. Following you...
