Encourages creativity and builds self-esteem

Marble Runs will encourage your child to use their imagination to build a track.  Whilst there are instructions and also pictures that can be copied, it is possible to put a unique track of your own design together.  Once completed, your child will experience a sense of achievement which promotes a self confidence in themselves and their abilities.

Promotes concentration and cognitive skills

Encourage your child to think about how the pieces of the Marble Run fit together.  This can be fascinating, considering which pieces could go where, and how the marbles will run around the track smoothly and freely.  If following the instructions, this will promote focus and patience.

Development of mathematical skills and spatial awareness

Encourage your child to sort the pieces of the Marble Run by colour or by shape.  Your child can then count the pieces they have sorted and you can introduce addition and subtraction to the activity.  Also talk to your child about what the Marble Run will look like when it is built and how much space you will need for it.  These skills will be very useful when studying science at school.
