First off forgive me if this post is a little rambling. I’ve finally succumbed to the cold both my kids have had over the past week or so and am struggling to stay awake for a late night meeting at work. Due to my head pounding and my ears aching I never got to prep another activity for Kaitlyn. Fortunately I had picked up this marble run kit at Lakeshore Learning over the weekend. If you haven’t been to this store before you should definitely check to see if there is a location near you. It was amazing! I could have roamed around the store for hours if it weren’t for having Kaitlyn with me and deciding she needed just about everything they sold there.
This kit required some assembly on my part but once it was put together both Kaitlyn and surprisingly Michael had a blast. It kept them amused while I could just lie back and watch although I had to step in now and then when Michael went on a destruction streak.
One other neat thing about this see through kit vs the solid one they also sell is that we got to play around with colors. Kaitlyn would put two different colors together and you could see how the two colors mixed to create a third color. So that kept her amused for awhile as well.
This is definitely a keeper for when you need to keep the kids occupied indoors on a rainy day or a sick day!
