Quick & Easy Fun — Ramps!

Here’s a quick and inexpensive way to rig up some fun for your little guys, courtesy of the Southern Minnesota Children’s Museum.  Rig up an easy ramp with a length of gutter and then use it to roll balls, cars and other toys down.

You can change the slant to see if the objects go faster or farther, and you can rig up super sized marble-type runs if you join some up.  We were even doing side by side races! 

I’d suggest finishing off the ends with a bit of electrical tape or duct tape, since I noticed they were a bit jagged.

You may even be able to get some gutters free off of Freecycle. 

My boys had a blast with these super simple creations!
