Here is another run snow activity that you can do either indoors or outdoors after a fresh snow fall! It is easy to make and great for toddlers, preschoolers and kindergartners!
Here’s how to create your own Snow Marble Run!
If you are doing this activity outdoors, grab all your supplies and head outside to make the snow marble run. If you are staying indoors (which is what we did!) , grab your boot and head outside with your baking sheet and pack it with snow.
Cover the entire sheet and pack it down so that your marble run will last longer if you are coming indoors. Smooth out the top of the snow with your hand.
Making a Snow Maze
I used a small spoon to create a maze in the snow. First I used the spoon handle to carve it out in the snow. This part can be a bit tricky (especially if you are indoors). Some parts of the maze may start to crack as you create a path, if this happens just grab the snow you dug out and patch up the crack! Its tricky but the fix is easy!
Then I used the spoon part to complete the marble run. I found it best to dig right down to the back sheet. The marble moves better when on the surface of the baking sheet.
Run Marble Run
Hand the baking sheet to your child and have them try and get the marble through the maze. To do this they will have to tilt it back and forth gently moving the marble through the path!
