Squishy Marble Maze

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I have seen this Marble Maze where you have to manipulate the marble through a path, and I made my own.

I used duct tap, a zip-lock bag, some dish soap, and a marble.

First I folded a strip of duct tape on itself, topsides together, so that I had a strip of sticky on both sides. I placed the pieces strategically inside of the zip-lock bag so that the duct tape created a path inside of the bag. I started all of the way at the bottom of the bag and worked my way up as I made sure that the tape stuck to both sides of the bag.

I then squeezed dish soap into the bag and had to move it along down the maze in order to make the maze squishy and give the marble lubrication for going through the maze.

Finally I sealed the top of the bag with duct tape (after closing the zip-lock part of course).

It feels funny when squishing the marble through the maze. With a little practice making these, I think that I could make a more intricate maze.

      It was pretty easy to make. It is not permanent however as the bag will eventually fail and you will have dish soap everywhere. It is a good quick easy make though.
