Mix and Match Recycled Robots from Fun at Home with Kids

Mix and Match Recycled Robots

Toilet paper roll/ paper towel roll Marble run. Did a variation of this with cub bear scouts as opening activity , using candy balls. Gave two teams a limited space to build in, and a minimum number of rolls they had to use (so they couldn't just make it go strait down). First team to get their ball into a cup at the bottom won. Turned out a little long for an opening activity, but worked.
