cardboard tubes + box = hours of fun! We pieced together TP and paper towel tubes. Used marbles. The kiddo loved it and even still pulls it out to roll the marbles into a dump truck. He wont' let me toss any cardboard tubes now.
An idea for Tom to build for me for any students with fine motor difficulties and a fun activity for our grandkids. Homemade busy board for fine motor skill development - this is heaven for a curious kid!
Great idea, just needs wood tone to tone down a bit, pale maroon would look good too (a pastel red-ish purple color to pop w floor). ceiling lights cool idea, pinkish looks good w floor's yellow-green.
