Our kids have really been into Perplexus these days. It’s a big 3-D marble maze in a ball, which is really clever and challenging.
So we thought about making our own marble maze. My 5-year old took to it right away. He worked for about a half an hour, perfecting his maze, trying different paths and combinations. He tried with a few kinds of marbles and found that the heavier ones worked best.
Then he gave it to his brothers to challenge them! It was a great activity, and I’m sure we’ll be doing this again!

I live in Bowmanville, and am a mom to four young boys - it can get a little loud in my house. I am a Christian, a part-time French teacher, a piano teacher and former homeschooler. I love finding the best deals, which will come in handy when our boys become hungry teenagers! We just moved to a house with more outdoor space, and I'm still getting used to life in the country (a walk around the block is a lot longer here!).
