DIY Toilet Roll Marble Run


Hours of after school fun that costs next to nothing to make - these are all just made of toilet paper rolls! And older kids can help assemble and paint them to their liking. You can customize your marble run by attaching them to a wall or a fridge and take it to the next level, too! 

For this craft you’ll need:

  • 11 Toilet paper rolls
  • Cardboard base
  • Tape
  • Paint
  • Glue
  • Marbles (or Pom Poms)

Using electrical tape, attach the toilet paper rolls together so that they’re like towers. 

Connect the towers with toilet rolls cut in half longways to create shoots, and tape to the towers. 

Cut holes in the towers for the slides to rest in, making sure they’re tilted downwards so the marbles can roll down them. 


Glue the towers onto the cardboard box base and wait for it to dry overnight. Glue-gun the slides to the towers so that they’re secure as well. 

Paint everything as desired. Once it’s dry, drop the marble or pom pom down from the highest tower and watch it roll!
