Giant pin impression panel Answered

My son has one of those multi-pin impression toys where you press your hand on one side and the pins move and you see your hand impression on the pins on the other side.  He loves it.  I've seen some large ones at Childrens Museums but it seems like there needs to be an instructable on how to make your own, preferably a giant one.

I've found some steel sheets online that would make good holders but couldn't come up with possible items for the 'pins'.  What are your ideas?

I have things planned to create one of these with straws, however I am having difficulting find a cheep way of capping them for color and also providing a stopper on one end so that they don't fly out all the time, any ideas?

These things cost money. 6"nails ground-off maybe what you want, but that's a lot of nails and grinding...

for a BIG one try 4 or 6 inch nails - cut the points off.
