Step 1: Tuna Can Dispenser
To make more space in my food cupboard, I tried to stack tuna cans on top of each other. Unfortunately the cans I use are not designed for stacking, so I kept knocking them over.
I covered the Pringles can with adhesive paper to make it more attractive.
Step 2: Tuna Can Dispenser
I cut two holes in the tube.
One for tuna can dispensing and another to see how many cans we have left in the tube.
Now I don't have to worry about knocking over the cans.
When the tuna can is needed, just pull it out. The new can will take its place.
This dispenser will always give you the oldest can first.
First in - First Out!

This is a great project to do with kids as you can design your own game.
