More Activities to Try With Marbles

  1. Marble Maze: Make a maze using straws, toothpaste, toilet paper, pens, and anything else you can think of. Inside the maze, place 1 marble (or more, depending on the number of players) and race it without “disturbing” any of the obstacles inside the maze.

Marble Toss: Like the name of the game suggests, all you have to do is toss your marbles inside a container. The greater your aim is, the more marbles you can manage to get inside the container.
