Marble Races with a cheap pool noodle (occupies the kids for hours.) Did this, but instead of cutting the pool noodle, the marble is small enough to fit inside the full noodle to roll down. Then can use the noodle for other things too!
cardboard tubes + box = hours of fun! We pieced together TP and paper towel tubes. Used marbles. The kiddo loved it and even still pulls it out to roll the marbles into a dump truck. He wont' let me toss any cardboard tubes now.
