Welcome! This is a candy drop so if you were to press the button then candy will drop from the SKY! It can also be used for Halloween. You could move a statue or something(be creative) so that when you move it it will press the switch! This project should only take 30 mins. All you will need is: Arduino UNO, servo motor, four screws, two pieces of thin wood, resistor, button (or something like it), tape, big rounded juice container, wires and if you would like, a breadboard. I will be using a breadboard in this project.
