Who can resist all the wonderful colors combined in a gumball machine? We used some items from the recycle bin for this fun project!
- Round Cardboard Container
- Egg Carton
- Pom Poms
- Round Wooden Bead
Step 1: Cut two segments of egg carton that each contain two egg portions. Round the edges if you'd like.
Step 2: Paint the egg carton segments and allow to dry.
Step 3: Stack the two segments on top of one another and glue together.
Step 4: Glue pom poms inside the round container.
Step 5: Glue round container to the top of the stacked egg carton segments.
Step 6: Glue the wooden bead (a plastic top would work great too) to the front of the gumball machine.
If you are working on colors with a little one, ask them what color pom poms they are gluing or count together how many pom poms there are of each color.
