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+++++!


  1. Aw, that is such a great idea, Ida! I'm going to have to make that for my nieces and nephews! :)


  2. What a cute idea! Seems easy to make and it's great that it's free!
    I found you on the Mom Bloggers Club.

    1. Thanks! Yes I just used what I found around the house!

  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...

  4. This is a great idea! New follower!

  5. Cute idea, Ida. My kids love marbles & straws so they'd have fun making & playing with this.

  6. Fabulous idea! My kids are 14-22 and even they would enjoy this. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Wow! I might try making this one for my cat! Thx! xoxo

  8. This sounds like a great idea. Glad you shared. I'm going to give it a try today.
