Quick and simple Junk model marble run.

 In our house recently we have been obsessed with marbles so we thought we’d create our own marble run out of whatever junk we could find (quick, cheap and simple). It might not look pretty, but was completely made by the boys themselves with whatever they could find at the time in our house. However it did work and they had lots of fun designing and playing with it.

How to make.

Level: Easy.

Cost: Zero apart from the tape and marbles as we used whatever junk we could find in the house.

Enjoyment: We had Lots of fun making and playing with.

Time: Approx 30 minutes plus playing time.

You will need: 

  • Any junk modelling you can find within your house at the time (boxes, bottles, toilet rolls etc.), Including a base to put it on.
  • Tape.
  • Scissors
  • Marbles.
  • Some imagination.
