It's time to introduce the kids to the glorious world of marble racing. This engaging activity for kids involves strategic thinking and creativity and provides hours of brain-enhancing entertainment.

Drop your kids off at Pine Woods Park, every Friday, where our Marble Racing Club will meet and create marble runs using various mediums. (Wood, cardboard, Legos, etc)

(Check out this video for an example: Marble Run Example )

Kids will then race their marbles through their runs in a tournament-style competition. Winners will be declared and prizes awarded. 

We will also have a weekly competition for the most creative idea incorporated into one of our marble runs. Each week one (or 2 if they're that good) inventive child/ren will be awarded the "Top Thinker" award for their ingenious design idea. 

Marble races will be recorded and shown on our soon-to-be-created Marble Racing Channel on YouTube.
