Take you straw and measure it to the tin. Cut it to make it fit. Glue string to the straw. You may need to wrap it around straw for extra support.

Step 7: Pole Magnet

Draw a donut looking shape on the magnet. Cut it out then use it to trace another, then cut that one out. Glue the two magnets together. The holes should match up. Take the string from the straw and tie it thru the hole. You have your pole!

Step 8: How to Play
