Here in Florida, it is either too hot to play outside, or it’s raining every.single.afternoon! Now, don’t get me wrong, we love the Florida sunshine life, but unless we are in the pool, or in some kind of water, we don’t spend a lot of times outdoors in the summer.
I am always looking for fun activities to keep my little ones busy indoors in the summer time. I like finding activities that can keep their brains working, and thinking, that are fun, not too loud, and something that can keep them busy for a long time! I have been researching lots of different STEM building activities and keep coming across these super fun and creative marble run ideas. Most of these materials you can find around your home already, or you can get for just a couple of bucks. I really think that these can keep your kids busy for HOURS! I am so excited to try some of these ideas.
