I saw this in Family Fun and thought we would give it a try. Except instead of racing marbles we raced - Whoppers. I love food and I am terrified that someone will swallow one, or forget to put them away and I will slip on one so we raced Whoppers and then ate them. There is no way they would forget to eat them or leave them around! Haha.
First you cut a pool noodle. I did this with a bread slicer - gasp - I know, I know.
Then you use toothpicks to stick them together.
Then you get a box to "catch" the precious Whopper Candies. And then races are go for launch.
You can make checkered flags and other decorations etc. We didn't but you totally could.
Instead we tried different inclines.
After that we tried to see if they would race at a diagonal, or straight. We tried all sorts of things which just meant MORE Whoppers! It was very scientific! Haha.
Try it! Noodles are cheap and Whoppers are too. Its hours of fun and tasty too!
