Run, marble, run!

I have vivid memories of the year my younger brother got an Evil Kenevil toy motorbike set for Christmas. I don’t think he even got a turn on Christmas Day. Instead, my Dad, grandpa and uncles took over, proving that some toys are just as much fun for adults as well as kids. It’s the same with marble runs.

Check out this dad’s amazing marble run – built for his son of course! Marbles travel around his son’s bedroom and includes curves, lifts, drops and hairpin bends – not only is the actual marble course super impressive, the whole thing looks good, like a curious bit of wall art.

Find the instructions on how to create something similar here. There’s a decent weekend project, dads!
