Create a twisting, turning Marble Run and race your friends through towers and tunnels.
We’ve used milk cartons to build the towers, and paper tubes for the marble paths. These reclaimed materials can be quickly and easily connected together with Makedo parts available at mymakedo.com.

To make this Marble Run, source milk cartons for towers and paper tubes for the marble path.

Step 2: Build

To make the towers, use the Makedo Safe-saw and remove the base of the milk carton. For two of the cartons, we will also need to saw the top off.

Step 3: Connect

To give your towers different heights, place one milk carton on top of the other as shown. Use the point end of the Makedo Safe-saw and punch a hole in the side. Be sure to pierce through both cartons. Connect using Makedo Re-pins and Re-clips.

Step 7: Connect

Connect the opened tubes together using Makedo Re-pins and Re-clips. Make the paths as long or as short as you wish. If you want to change your path, simply remove the Makedo Re-clip and adjust the direction or angle. Then reconnect it with Makedo.

Step 8: Build & Share
