  • 6 toilet paper tubes
  • 6 pieces of different colored paper
  • 6 index cards
  • cardboard box lid
  • packaging tape
  • ruler

  2. Wrap the strip around the center of your toilet paper roll.  Glue and let dry.  Repeat for all 6 rolls and all 6 sheets of paper.

  1. Using the packaging tape, secure your 6 rolls in your cardboard lid.  You get to pick the placement!
  2. Cover the index cards with the remaining colored paper.  There should be one card for each color.
  3. Begin the game!

How to play:

1. Shuffle the index cards face-down and pick three or four.  Lay them out on the table in a row.
2. Roll the marble/ball through the corresponding color tubes in the same order as the cards.
3. For a bigger challenge, try laying out all the cards.
4. Try assigning points- 5 points for the tubes on the edges of the box and 10 points for the inside tubes.  Add points for correctly going through the tubs, subtract points if you accidentally go through the wrong one.
