I have made two candy machines using online tutorials and I loved them...so I decided to make my own. YAY! This candy machine/dispenser dispenses smarties on the push of a button. I'm also sorry that I couldn't give a full tutorial on making it. :(
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Find a Pen Spring
You'll need the pen spring in order for the button to work I used a spring from a pen that ran out of ink. Make sure that it fits inside the lego brick.
Step 2: The Button
The button is really basic. This I'll tell you how to make. You need:
6x 1x1 bricks
Remember that the spring god inside the brick!
Step 3: The Base
The base could be done in many ways I have just gotten some different plates and put tiles where they should be... Fair enough.
Step 4: Building Up
As you can see I have placed bricks around so The button wont fly out, trust me... It happens I have also left a 4x4 hole in the machine which is where you put the smarties (it holds 9-10).
Step 5: The Removable Lid
The lid is there so the smarties don't go everywhere it connects to a 1x4 plate and a 1x2 plate.
