Here is one idea and it was so much fun to make!
Here are the steps on how to make this simple shoe box crafts idea:
Add a cardstock paper to the inside of your shoe box if yours is torn up like mine is.
Then, use a hot glue gun to add craft sticks to the shoe box to create a maze.
If you’d like to get even more creative then we did, make some semi holes (not poking all the way through or the ball will fall out from the bottom) throughout the maze for a more advanced approach to the game.
Then, add your marble into the mix and have fun with this DIY Montessori Busy Board AKA “ fun game” for your littles.
