Let's Build a Fun Marble Maze out of Building Blocks!Jun 07, 2021
Hey guys, look at this fantastic
maze. I found that it has a lot of fun play features, like a spinning wheel, a musical xylophone, and even some cute animals that we can meet, like this giraffe, an elephant, and an alligator, and it has a lot of pieces, so I really can. use your help to put it together, what do you say? Yeah, awesome, that's what I like to hear, so let's open it up so we can get started. I put together
mazes, but never a marble maze with
blocks. This should be fun.
Oh. it's just a bag there's more inside hey it's a xylophone well let's see what other things we can find oh here's another bag and this one looks like it has a lot of gears and I think this is a stand and there's even more stuff let's throw them away I want save some time. Wow, that's a lot of pieces. I'm definitely going to need your help for this. Let's start with the instructions. This is the one we're going to do, so let's take a look inside. It looks like we will need the green base the stand and the wheel to get started I am so excited this is going to be fun here is our first green base we are going to place here and we will place the stand right on top of it it is very important that we place the pieces in the places right and here's our big wheel piece, it can spin like this.
We can use it to keep the marbles on the track. Next we need to make a column so we can add some gears to allow us to rotate. the wheel is almost like a pattern big piece small piece big piece small piece big piece now for this long blue rectangle it will keep the column straight then the two attachments for our gears one and two and here are our two gears let's go ahead and put the purple one on at the bottom and then we can add the red one at the top making sure the gears line up finally we'll need our handle for the gears that need to go on the bottom, okay now look, isn't it so cool to spin?
The gear turns the wheel because they are joined together. Next, we need to add some pieces behind the wheel to give some support to where the marbles are going to come out. This piece should stick out like this with a little green piece next to it and then we can cover them with another orange rectangle, it looks like it's sticking its tongue out at us. Next are these two column pieces that are going to support the top pieces of the trap. Now let's make them even taller by
buildingthem on top of They're awesome now for our first part of the real track, a blue slide and then an orange funnel to catch the marbles when we drop them and another one here to make sure they're okay and dizzy if They go in this direction and a flower. because why not, now we can add a little bit more of the track going over here, one more little straight piece and then we'll add the corner to turn the marbles right here and let's check the seesaw piece, it will send the marbles back and forth and it won't. we'll know which direction they'll go back down on the green base, we'll build another column to connect to the second orange funnel, one last piece here, and then we'll see if we can get the blue slide in there. come on, that fit pretty well now for a corner piece that will send the marbles to our right.
You didn't think we were going to use just one base piece. Shall we go ahead and join the second one? Now this track is. It's going to be really big and a lot of fun when we're done with this. This column here will extend and connect to the runway that we've already started
buildingand that will allow us to lengthen the runway even further. Take a look at these wonders. Go down this little slide here and down this length right away, but we won't stop there, we'll add this alligator to make it a little more dangerous, watch your fingers now, go back to the other side of the marble maze.
We will start preparing our second track to go this way. This green rocker piece looks like a fun way to do it. We can add it to the top of the column we just made. An orange brick will go here because here comes our giraffe. a path across his neck and along his back to let the marble slide down and this cute little animal will go right here and then we can add a few more pieces to keep this our second clue, then we need to get ready to add a clue to the front of the marble maze, well, that was easy.
Now we can move the track starting with the pieces behind the giraffe. This big red slide looks fun and will send the marbles through this blue curve and then we'll add another one. flower to spruce things up a bit, so we can add a yellow slide that goes in this direction and now we can use some straight pieces and curved pieces to make our track go all the way to the front and this crossing piece will let the marbles go anywhere . any way you want, we can put one more curve and now our maze is divided into two more tracks and with the help of another crossing piece we can make them join again here and two more straight pieces will help take them towards the wheel and now We'll work on the track again with the alligator to do that we'll need two curves together so we'll use this green piece as a piece of tape and then we can stick this orange curve and now you see our curve. like an s and can go at the top of the column, it looks like part of a roller coaster.
We still have one more animal to add to our clue, so let's see if we can give these two pieces a good place to go here. It will be like a kind of pedestal for our elephant and this trunk can go up and down to let our marbles slide down, there you go, Mr. Elephant, and now we can use the pole and attach a green curve to turn the track and to that I can add our xylophone. I can't wait to hear our marbles go down. I'll attach this side to the post we just placed and the right side to this piece over here now, let's have this yellow slanted curve, another cross, a straight towards the wheel and a red piece to catch the marbles that come this way and now it's time to prepare the final piece of our marble maze.
First we'll need five squares with pegs and that's five and then three of them need small gears. and the other two will be large, one purple and one red, then we will add a small gear on top of the red one and an orange handle on top of the purple one and finally we will add a flag that indicates that the gears can rotate. and one more flower, wow guys, we did it, we finished building the marble maze and now we can play with it, let's start by adding a yellow and blue marble to our marble maze to see what happens, oh, it's on the orange seesaw, I wonder in which direction. will go, it looks like he's taking the bottom trap, the one with the giraffe, and he goes all the way, that was great, but now it's time to try all eight marbles at once, let's add them in slowly so they don't.
The trap is not overflowing four five six seven eight good luck marbles now we can start spitting them through the wheel to keep them working fine, it's working look at these two guys, shout, there you go and the other one, I love the way it looks They are taking the marbles. Different paths, some are at the top and some are at the bottom and here they meet the xylophone. Wow, our marbles really move. I hope the alligator doesn't catch them. Let's do a trick shot. Well, here's the slow motion. We need to spin the wheel again to get the marbles back up, but we have to be patient to spin it to get them into the holes that way.
Wow, these marbles are really going, it looks like they are having a lot. fun too uh oh, it's alligator time and it looks like our final marbles are going through the marble maze, let's spin the flag. Great job, marble, you did fantastic and so did you at home. Thanks for helping us build it and play with it. Goodbye everybody.
