This would be good for either of my scout groups (boys or girls). I'm thinking they would make a good gathering activity to then race. See which one goes the farthest, fastest, or which one knocks down the most "pins" perhaps?

Make it RAIN! Hot water in the jar, cold front "clouds" on rains in the jar. Totally awesome.

Marble slides. This site has lots of cool science activities using everyday materials.
