Marble Maze

We love re-using KiwiCo boxes and making new activities with them before recycling. Because my kids love puzzles/games we decide to create a marble maze with just a few materials that you probably have at home. This simple and fun activity will not only entertain your kids, but also teach them about problem-solving skills to navigate through the maze, and how to create a maze that challenges others to do the same. They will also learn about engineering, as they design and build their own maze using cardboard and other materials. And finally, they will learn about physics as they observe the motion and speed of the marbles as they move through the maze.


  • Easy


  • Cardboard box

  • Straws

  • Glue

  • Pencil

  • Small Ball


  1. Use a pencil to design your maze.

  2. Use scissors or a knife (adult supervision required) to cut the end hole in the maze.

  3. Cut and glue straws to cover the pencil drawings to make the maze.

  4. Let it dry for 15-30 minutes before playing.

  5. Have fun!


  • Adult supervision required for any of these activities. Please supervise and make sure children participating are safe. Read instructions and the safety labels from each material.
