Make Your Set of Marbles
Hi! I want to tell you how to make your very own set of marbles!
I hope you like my craft idea! ~Jordan
What you need:
- Baking or self hardening clay in several colours
- An adult helper
if using baking clay
What you do:
- Take a small piece of clay and roll it into a ball, if you want multicoloured marbles, use 2 or 3 colours. Make about 10 small marbles, and 1 larger one, for rolling. You can make them all different.
- Bake or dry the marbles according to the directions on the package of clay.
How to play a game of marbles:
- Get together with a friend who has their own marbles or share your marbles.
Draw a circle outside on the sidewalk (or any other hard outdoor surface) with chalk.
Place the marbles in the circle and give the big marble to your friend.
Have your friend try to roll your marbles out of the centre, she will claim the marbles she knocks out, but, if she rolls one of her marbles out of the circle you get that marble!
Take turns until all the marbles are gone.
The person with the most marbles wins!
Note: you should make your marbles different colours, so you can tell who
rolled who's marble out of the circle.
