Step 1: Step 1: Stuff You Will Need

The things you will need to make the project are

  • Toilet Rolls
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • A Marble

Step 2: Step 2: Creating

Start by making two cuts on one side of the roll, slide the cuts into another toilet roll, as you can see in the picture. Finally Tape around the joint.

Step 3: Step: 3

Repeat steps 2 and 3, Once you have the basics, start to put in some of your own creativity, by adding features. In my one i have cut some toilet rolls in half to see the marble as it rolls through, but you could make all sorts of features like jumps and maybe even a loop. Here is a video of mine.

Thanks for reading :)

    Great fun for a snow day! I'll start saving tubes for my 6yo grandson. He'll love to build this!

    Fun marble run. I have made lots of these with folded paper ramps taped to my walls.
