Lego Marble Maze

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!
 

You could do this for a party activity, or just some rainy day fun! You could also try spelling  a word on the maze (we think we almost see the word Lego on his maze).

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!).

  1. Cute idea! We love Perplexus too (as well as Legos/K-Nex/etc). Will have to show this to my girls today!

  2. This looks like an excellent activity for children. Much better than sitting back and letting a screen entertain them. Kudos to you. Your children will surely develop their thinking ability ahead of the couch potatoes. Visiting from UBC. http://t.co/7dfHxUf2HY
