Marble racer

The day after a birthday can be a bit of a let down, after all the excitement and spoiling the day before reality can hit hard the next day. So I wanted to keep the boys busy without too much fuss.
We decided to recycle the tube from the wrapping paper from Tyler's presents and make a marble racer.

The boys coloured in the tube.

Tyler got creative drawing fire for the marbles to race through.

We cut the tube in half length ways and lent it against the back of the sofa. The boys raced the marbles down.

 Tyler made a lava pond and put obstacles for the marbles to fight through.

After all the toys Tyler got yesterday he was still happy to play with some cardboard (don't get me wrong, he still loves his new toys), it just goes to show, you really don't need to spend a lot of money on kids entertainment at all.

Have fun.
