Step 1: What You Will Need

Sticky tape,

pop sticks,

cardboard,

any small toy,

coloured paper and hot glue,

some kind of bottle cap or cup thing.

Step 2: Step 2

Get a box that you think will be good enough for this project.

Step 3: Step 3

Get any coloured paper and decorate the box by stick the paper on with any pattern. This is what I did.

Step 4: Step 4

Poke holes on the sides of the box for the pop sticks to go through.

Step 5: Step 5

Stick four pop sticks together.

Step 6:

Cut 3 or 4 pieces of cardboard into this shape to make a cam, stick them together and poke a hole through them.

Step 7: Step 7

Put the pop sticks through the holes in the box and put the popsticks through the cam.

Step 8: Step 8

Put another stick on the cam and poke a hole in the box where you want your small toy to go.

Step 9: Step 9

Hot glue the stick to the small toy. Then you can start decorating the surroundings of the small toy.

Step 10: Step 10

When you rotate the pop stick axle, the cam moves, making the toy jump up and down. Enjoy your simple machine!
