    Applicable science concepts

    Loved that the marble activity introduced my son to Newton's law of motion and made him think. This is something that sparked his imagination and had easy to follow instructions so I didn't have to step in too often.

    Both science and art

    We really enjoyed the engineering aspect of creating different marble runs to time different things. It took a little bit of work to make the joint work correctly, but once we did my child played with it for hours! The timer is still sitting on our counter to show off to visitors.

    Fun and engaging

    My grandson loved being able to build the marble timer himself and then had lots of fun watching the marbles run their course. He then experimented with changing the shelves. A great experiment for him! He also enjoyed dyeing the ornaments and wanted me to make them into a necklace so he could always show them off!
