This is a reindeer candy dispenser that poops out tasty treats for you to eat!
When you push down on his head, an internal mechanism dispenses a small, measured amount of candy. It works especially well with hard-shell candies like M&Ms; and Reeces.
My kids think it's HILARIOUS, but their mom just rolls her eyes because of all the jokes, sounds, and comments that go along with the dispensing of candy.
Read on to see how I made this!
I began with an 8-foot long, 4" wide by 3/4" thick pine board. I cut it into two 4-foot pieces, and used a band saw to rip one of these halves into two approximately 3/8" thick pieces.
There was quite a bit of trial and error involved with making this, but even so I've still got plenty of material left to make at least two or three more.
