Three DIY Marble Runs

Last week Archana wrote us looking for an inexpensive marble run and, no surprise, readers came through with some great alternatives as well as some fantastic diy ideas.

• Helen of Curly Birds linked to a wonderful toilet paper roll run made at her house.

• Amida of Journey Into Unschooling sent us a link to a craft stick marble run (with really funny signs) made at her home. This is only one of three marble runs she's made (see PVC pipe marble run and cereal box marble run).

• Reader Karen302 linked to a diy magnetic marble run at Family Fun.

Our readers are the best! Thanks Helen, Amida and Karen!

Check out the comments in Archana's Good Question for links to less expensive marble runs to purchase. We wrote about the Wondermaze a few years ago.
