Mommy Carnival

Welcome to Mommy’s Homemade Carnival….

Our first game, Roll the Marble
I used a ruler, a marble, a chair, one step stool with compartments underneath and one without and some beads or small toys.

To set up: I flipped the stool with compartments and put a bead on each compartment. I lined it up next to the other stool and the chair. Then, placed the ruler on the chair as a bridge.

To play: Roll the marble on the ruler and let it drop on the stool. The child wins the beads or toys in the container that the marble lands on.

I used a bracelet and a couple of toys and containers that can stand up and fit inside the bracelet
