A marble run game from plastic bottles

Pool noodles!! We made this for blue & gold....it took 30 minutes and we still play with it at home. One suggestion is to use the larger noodles for the poles and put a PVC pole inside it to make it sturdy.

so cool -> simple tree swing using a rope and an old pool noodle

  • Amanda Wolf

    I would assume the pool noodle can rip easily under kids weight.

  • Meagan Hopper

    It slips over the rope for softness its not tied to the rope

  • April Smith

    I think you thread the pool noodle through the rope so it's kind of like a cushion! Genius!!

  • Elizabeth Moreno

    Thank you! My kids and I were looking for an easy solution for their rope swing!

    SO, so weird... the child in this picture looks *so* much like my own that my husband and I both thought that it was her! Except that the clothes aren't right... and as far as we know she's never been on such a swing (cool though it is). very strange moment.

Bottle marble run. This would work on the water wall I have posted. Just use nuts and flat end bolts and screw onto a peg board from home depot. You can cut off the mouth of the bottles to make a larger opening and use golf balls or other balls. Cheap and easy--but so much fun!

    Could use magnetic tape to adhere bottles to fridge. . . That way you can change up the course design for the ball!

If I ever make a marble run (admittedly, not terribly likely), this will be the one I model it after!
