Underground tunnel game

Thinking of game ideas about dung beetles made us think about how we could make a 3D tunnel game. Take a look at what we came up with! Can you design a 3D game with cardboard or tubes?


We started off with toilet roll tubes and some marbles. We had been reading about how dung beetles take their dung down tunnels into the ground.

Our game wasn’t planned, it just grew as we stuck bits on!

Can you spot our little lego dung beetle? He liked his new tunnel home a lot!

This ended up as a really fun game! The marbles could roll either down to the left or the right. If they rolled to the right then they fell straight down into a little round cardboard cup. If they rolled to the left they rolled further and then ended up in one of two cardboard boxes. We thought these compartments could have a different score!
