Marble Activities for Kids
Black Snake Marble Golf
In the Black Snake Marble Golf activity, kids can play golf with marbles. It's a challenging summer activity that will keep kids having fun for hours.
What You'll Need:
- One marble for each player (shooter size)
- Dirt playing area
- Pencil or pen
How to Play Black Snake Marble Golf:
Step 1: Use the heel of your shoe to scoop out a long row of shallow holes in the dirt. The distance between holes should be about twice the distance the average player can shoot. Make nine or ten holes.
Step 2: Each player shoots from a line drawn n the dirt near the first hole. Players take turns shooting, one hole at a time. The object is to shoot the marble into each hole. The marble must fall into hole one before you can shoot for hole two.
Step 3: Keep track of how long it takes to complete the course. The person who completes the course in the fewest shots wins.
Step 4: To make the game even more challenging, each person who completes the course can be a "black snake" who can shoot his or her marble at the other players' marbles, knocking them off course.
