A couple of simple ideas to play with marbles.

Today was about marbles. I finally found the marbles I thought I'd lost (seriously).

We made a discovery bottle with red liquid glucose (1 part water to 2 parts sugar which has been brought to boiling point and cooled) and baby oil. We put a few marbles in the bottle too so not only do the colours seperate when you shake it and let it settle but the marbles bump along the ridges of the bottle.

When Katie wasn't watching I put a marble in a balloon and blew it up. Very funny, I'd recommend you do this!! Great fun to play catch with and she's really enjoyed shaking it and spinning the marble around inside the balloon.
