Marble Run Mania for Early Learners

Explore early learners creativity & problem-solving skills!/h3>
Using highly accessible materials from Mud Kitchen, your preschoolers will have a blast as they create their own designs to solve a series of challenges in making a marble run work. Designed to allow children to explore movement in a constructive environment, this workshop allows them to rapidly predict, test, modify and implement their ideas!

NB: The balls used are too large to be a choking hazard and have been designed by Mud Kitchen to be used in early learning centres

Specifically, this workshop covers:

  • How things move and stop
  • Problem-solving and planning
  • Creative thinking and sequencing
