As it is school holidays, the boys are not completing any bookwork, but they do need activities to keep them occupied. This was an activity that we completed for one of those days.
On B’s birthday, he received a bit of money and wanted to go and buy some toys. We headed to Target who had a stand at the front door with pool noodles on sale.I had seen these marble run things before and new I would need to purchase a pool noodle to do it. Only problem is, the pool noodles only seem to be on sale in the hotter months and I wasn’t prepared to damage one of the two we have for using in the pool.
They had a great time racing the marbles down and then they decided to try cars.
They grabbed a few of the smaller cars that they have and raced them down.
Then they pulled the marble run apart and placed the pool noodle halves face down on the ground.
They tried to throw the marble through the hole in the noodle along the ground.
This one activity turned into many with their imaginations.
It was great to see them have fun and keep occupied at the same time.
