Have you ever heard of plinco? The game where you drop a plastic puck down a board that has obstacles sticking out and the objective is to get the puck into the smallest slot at the bottom (the middle one.) Then if you get it in the middle slot first try you get the best prize. This is a type of game that you would see at a carnival or fair. :)
Well I made a plinco board using the simplest materials money could buy. I used paper coffee cups, a board, and a pool ring for the puck. These simple materials made a great use and now I used paper coffee cups instead of having to throw them away.
So you should really think about making this and by the way you should vote for me in the paper coffee cup contest please :)
Step 1: Materials Needed
-9 paper coffee cups :these are inexpensive and fairly easy to find.
-a plastic board :It should be about the size as the one in the picture in the intro.
-some coffee stickers :you can buy these or just print some off and glue them on.
-Hot glue gun and hot glue gun sticks
Step 2: Glue on Paper Cups Open Side Down
Your going to need to make sure that the puck you use has room to fit between each cup. So you can glue them in any places you want but just make sure there is room for the puck you use can fit through the openings.
Step 3: Now It's Time to Make the Walls for the Board
So after this step you should now have: A board with coffee cups glued on and 2 inch high walls on the 2 long sides.
Step 4: Make the Slots for the Puck and Label Them
It's time to label the slots. I used a pen but you can use a marker or anything. The first slot to the left I labeled 20% off coffee. The next slot to the left was 50% off coffee. The middle slot was a free coffee and this is the best slot to get. The next slot should be labeled 50%off coffee. Then the next and last slot is labeled 20% off coffee. This is what I labeled mine but you can label yours however you want.
Next your going to need to glue the slots onto your original board (the one that has the coffee cups on it.) So once you do this continue onto the next step.
Step 5: Add Stickers
Have fun with your new plinco board and hope you have some fun with it.
Once again vote for coffee cup plinco in the coffee cup contest please. :)
