Here's a quick and easy scoring challenge to help keep your youngsters from losing their marbles when blustery March has them trapped indoors.
Turn the box so its open side is on the bottom and cut 5 evenly spaced notches (ours were 1-1/4 inches wide) along one long side. Number the holes as shown.
Set the box on the floor and choose a starting line, anywhere from 3 to 6 feet away, depending on the ages of the contestants.
To play, give each player 5 marbles and have them take turns trying to shoot them into the holes. Players earn the point values of the holes their marbles enter, and the player with the highest score after everyone has their turn wins.
