Marvellous marbles

Today was a day for marbles, Little 2 wanted to get the marble run out and so we did, I used all my creative energy to build a huge set up and hoped it wouldn't get knocked down too quickly, it was as tall as her and she had to stand on tip-toe to reach the top.



She was very absorbed in playing with it and concentrating hard, guessing where the marbles would come out and which colour would end up where.


She played with it for ages, we both had great fun!


Once her interest waned we played other things with the marbles like mini skittles, colour sorting, counting, adding and taking away, she loved it and so did I. Two days on the marble run is still in one piece and the girls have both played with them for hours as well as Mummy and Daddy having a few sneaky turns too!


What toy is a family favourite in your house? The marble run is definitely one of ours.

    We don't have a marble run, but I have thought about getting one! In our house it's lego, hot wheels and hexbugs that can keep them amused for hours :) #minicreations

  3. I am the same as Sara, I have always thought about getting one but never gotten around to it. This is the second marble run post I've seen this week and I am beginning to be convinced that it looks like a lot of fun! #MiniCreations

    I really want to get Potato a marble run but I think he might be a little young. I think it would forever be being knocked over. 2 days is pretty impressive!

  5. Little 2 loves it, it does get knocked down quite quickly a lot of the time but this time she was a bit more controlled!
