Jenny and Lucas take a ride on the tallest rollercoaster in Canada to find out how it works. Then they’re back in the craft space to make fun interactive wall-art.
- Test your track often to make sure everything connects properly as the ball rolls down
- Reposition pipes, dowels, elastics, etc if issues arise (closer together or further apart, more or less
- Lean the board against the wall so the ball can roll easier.
- Replacing the elastics may help to reduce bouncing on the track as they may have stretched out over time.
- Paint it or add stickers to blank peg board
- Peg Board 32w x 42H (or any size desired)
- Dowels to match the size of holes on the peg board
- Marbles – wood, glass or metal; experiment with different sizes
- Paint , stickers, glitter, etc
- Pipes, slinkies, cupboard handles, metal track, etc.
- 2 pieces trim board 2x1 (white)
- 2 zip ties
- Fun Parts to put on the board as decoration
How to make it
Step 1: Paint the pegboard with any colours and designs you'd like
Step 2: It is best to start from the top and work your way down
Step 3: Tap dowels into the peg board, making sure that they are angled slightly downwards
Step 4: Join two dowels using a couple of elastics – this will be the track for the marble
Step 5: Use handles or slinkies for banking at the end of each little track to switch directions
Step 6: Continue until the course reaches the bottom
