Plinko Candy Dispenser
I just re-drew his plan candy dispenser plan because I thought it would be fun to draw. What a great project for a grandparent or parent that is looking for a unique gift. You could adjust it so that it holds ping pong balls or something similar if you do want to add to their sugar intake. Either way have fun with this project. It might make a great project to build with your kids as well.
