Keep 'Em Busy {Cereal Box Marble Track}

What kid doesn't love a good marble track? I know my little guy gets a big kick out of them. This one is really simple; all you need is tape, a cereal box (or two), scissors or a knife, and marbles.

Check out some of the marble track action:

My little guy just LOVES playing with this marble track!
