Simple Paper Marble Run

Wondering if you should go ahead and buy that expensive marble run? This Mommy decided that she’ll get her son to be more creative by constructing a wall mounted marble run out of thick paper. There are chutes, tunnels and gravity defying jumps, all built out of inexpensive paper and sticky tape. The great thing is that once your child gets bored, it’s easy to remove and put in to the recycling can. In this example, they have kept things simple by using just a small section of the wall, but you can easily extend it around the room and have more complex chutes and drops.
