Simple Wire Loop Game




Introduction: Simple Wire Loop Game

Hi all this is my first instructable, hope you like it.
I wanted to create a simple game, with things laying around, for my son to play with and also involve him in the process, in order for him to feel the joy of creation along with the fun of this simple game... So here it is!

Step 1: What I Have Used

A piece of MDF wood around 50cm X 50cm
1-2 metal wire hangers
A 6v buzzer
12 plastic frets from old DVD devices
Battery holder for 2 batteries
Some wire
Electrical duct tape
Hot glue
A dremel
Few wood screws
An old pen

Step 2: Standing on Its Feet

Stack them and screw them on the wood.
Add some colorful duct tape to make it look somewhat better.

Step 3: Making the Loop

Undo the metal hanger and shape it on the shape you like.
Drill some holes on the wood and stick them inside.
Make sure at least one end is reaching outside the wood in order to be able to solder upon.
Add some hot glue to stay in ace and tape the ends in order to signify the end of the loop.

Step 4: Battery Pack

I had two single AA batteries holder so I solder them together in series in order to get 3v out of the batteries. I hotglur them on the bottom of the wooden base.

Step 5: Connecting Cables

Solder the Ground cable to the battery pack ground (-) and the hot wire(red) of the buzzer on the (+) of the battery pack.
Now solder the other end of the ground cable on the wireloop.
Connect one end of a long wire, by soldering it, on the black cable of the buzzer.
Hot glue the wires so they won't be hanging.
Drill a hole on the wooden base and pass through the long wire in order to be connected on the pen.

Step 6: Making the Pen

Unscrew both ends and remove all components from the pen's tube. We only need the tube.
Pass through the cable and connection on the hard wire.
Push the hard wire and the cable inside the tube and add some hot glue on the ends to keep them in place.

Step 7: Finito

Add two AA Batteries and is ready to play with!
