Rainy Day Fun: Bouncy Ball Race Track

Thank goodness for Pinterest!

It is a rainy Summer day in Florida and I have 5 kids in the house. They are cute… and dangerous! 🙂

This Summer I am having fun building memories with not only my kiddos but 3 additional amazing and fun kids. All the kids are great listeners and so sweet. I am just out numbered- and pregnant. lol

Pinterest has been amazing. There are so many fun ideas on there  I started a Summer Fun Board.


One of the ideas on there was to build a marble race track. I am limited on marbles- (literal marbles… although this pregnancy does often make me feel like I am “losing my marbles” too) – but I somehow have a bunch of bouncy balls.

So we made a bouncy ball track.

  • bouncy balls
  • toilet paper rolls (paper towel rolls)
  • tape
  • scissors

Here is how it happened. 🙂

Each of the kids had a task. Whether it was cutting the toilet paper rolls, holding the tape, or sharing ideas. They all worked together.

So far so good.
