An Infinity Loop is a ball run that goes around and around, and you have to keep moving it to keep the ball on the run. Its beginning is its end and it just keeps going. I have quickly and easily made an infinity loop toy
out of two sturdy paper plates and some duct tape.
First you cut into the plate about 2 ½ inches and then cut around the inside to take the middle out of the plate. Do this to both plates. Then you just duct tape the ends together so that the indentation made from the plate’s edge continues without a break. We had to build up a couple of edges with duct tape.
Use a small ball, such as a ping pong ball, bouncy ball, marble, etc, and see if you can motor plan and keep the ball from falling off of the infinity loop as you move it to go around the connected circles.
