Try this marble menagerie game and round out your animal collection with a little marble magic. If you enjoy easy crafts and marbles, this marble menagerie game is perfect for you!
What You'll Need:
- Stiff cardboard
- Colored marbles
- Craft glue
- Colored paper
Cut a small piece of stiff cardboard about four by six inches long. Decorate it so it looks like an animal habitat or a cuddly pet bed. Now, follow the patterns above to make a marble mate -- or try some creatures of your own!
Make a turtle (a circle of marbles for the shell, one marble each for the turtle's head, feet, and stubby tail), snake (six marbles laid end to end) or a marble cat (a pyramid of marbles with paper ears and tail added.)
Cut out small pieces of paper for eyes, ears, and other body parts to finish your creatures; add the details to the paper with markers. When the glue is dry, put your animal in its habitat!
