DaughterStitches sent me a link to a blog, and said, Please Mom, make me some of these! This is the blog, called Serving Pink Lemonade. (Isn't that a cute name!?!) She gives a tutorial to make these very simple marble games.
I won't give you the directions, as you can visit the site, but I basically took two rectangles, and sewed them right sides together.
Then I turned them right side out, and sewed some lines throughout the little "pouch" to create the maze. I backspaced at both the beginnings and endings of these lines to lock the stitches so they would not unravel.
I popped in a marble before I sewed the opening closed.
The child (or adult!) spends time moving the marble around the maze. A great way to keep young fingers busy in a safe way. I think DaughterStitches might have a few students who need this maze toy!
I honestly had trouble stopping making these! They are so fun to make and just take scraps. So I made several and I will give them to people for their young kids or grandkids.
