How do you make a homemade maze?
- The first thing you want to do is map out how you’d like to set up your maze, this way you can figure out where you’d like to cut all your doors in the maze.
- Next, on your boxes draw a decent size door on the box & cut out with an X-Acto knife.
- Once you have your doors cut out it’s time to connect them all.
How do you make a marble run at home?
It’s easiest to build your marble run inside a big cardboard box with no lid. You can use tape or tac to hold different parts in place. Cut cardboard tubes in half lengthways and tape them together end to end, forming a long chute. You can use rolled up newspaper to form covered tunnels as well.
How do marble mazes work?
You are exploring physics! Gravity pulls the marble down the first hill. At the top of the hill, the marble has potential energy (energy that’s stored up and ready to be released). As the marble rolls down the hills the potential energy turns into kinetic energy (energy of motion).
How do you make a marble maze out of paper?
How To Make A Marble Maze
- First you need to cut the front panel out of your box.
- Next, tape the small flap back in place so that you have four even sides.
- Next cut a piece of paper to fit the bottom of the box and glue it in place.
- Now the fun part: create your maze!
- Let your creating dry and get ready to play!

What can I use instead of a marble ball?
If you don’t have a marble lying around, there are other things to use instead! Anything that rolls can be useful, but you will have to build your track based on the size of your new object. An easy substitute is to make a dough ball – just mix some flour and water together and roll it into a ball.
What force will slow down your marble?
Friction is the force that slows objects down.” While constructing your marble run, hypothesize about the different materials that will line the tubes.
Is a marble run an inclined plane?
A marble run is an inclined plane or ramp. Ramps are sloping surfaces that connect two or more levels. In classical science an inclined plane is considered one of the six most basic machines because it takes advantage of the laws of physics to perform a task and change a force.
What made the marble stop rolling?
The key to keeping your marble rolling is to understand the forces acting on it, especially gravity and friction. Gravity constantly pulls down on the marble, causing it to roll on any surface that’s not perfectly level. If the force of friction is greater than the force of gravity, the marble will roll to a stop.
