This is so clever!

Am I the only one that walks by that big box of pool noodles at the store and thinks, “Ohhhh the possiblities!”??

Family Fun came up with the idea to cut a pool noodle in half and use it as a marble racetrack.

Dilly Dally came up with a great marble game!

Simply cut a piece of cardboard to look like the one above.  Label each arch with a number of points.  Players shoot their marbles through the arches and add up their points.

Go HERE for the easy instructions.

And finally, this last idea is a cinch to make!

It’s a magnetic marble run made out of paper towel rolls!

In just 3 basic steps TPcraft came up with a way to entertain your Happy Buddy for hours on end!

  1. These are great, Julie! I love the rearrangeable paper towel tubes/magnets idea! I wonder if marbles would roll well on those train tracks so many folks have? If you put some together on a big tray that you could tilt around that might be fun. Hmmm….

  2. We did the marble paint with our VBS students. It was wonderful! They absolutely LOVED doing this. It was actually my first time doing it and will try it at home. I am also going to try the pool noodle idea :)
