Building a DIY Candy Vending Machine: A Guide to Sneaking Snacks Anywhere
Snacking is one of life’s simple pleasures, but sometimes you need to be sneaky about it. Maybe you’re in a movie theater, or maybe you just don’t want to share your treats. Whatever the reason, a DIY candy vending machine can be the perfect solution. Not only can you sneak snacks anywhere, but you can also customize your machine to dispense your favorite treats.
Materials You’ll Need:
- Cardboard box
- Acrylic paint
- X-Acto knife
- Hot glue gun
- Plastic cups
- Candy of your choice
- Small servo motor
Step 1: Preparing the Box
The first step is to find a cardboard box that is the right size for your candy vending machine. The box should be large enough to hold your candy and small enough to be portable. Once you have your box, you’ll need to paint it with acrylic paint. You can use any color you like, but it’s best to choose a color that will help your vending machine blend in with its surroundings.
Step 2: Cutting the Dispensing Hole
Once your paint is dry, you’ll need to cut a hole in the top of the box. This hole will be used to dispense the candy. Use a ruler to measure and mark where you want the hole to be, then use an X-Acto knife to carefully cut along your lines.
Step 3: Installing the Servo Motor
The next step is to install the servo motor. This motor will be used to dispense the candy from the box. First, you’ll need to attach the plastic cups to the servo motor using hot glue. Then, you’ll need to mount the servo motor in the box, making sure that the plastic cups are positioned above the dispensing hole.
Step 4: Adding the Candy
Now it’s time to add the candy to your vending machine. Simply fill the plastic cups with your favorite treats and make sure that they are easily accessible. You can use different types of candy or even small toys if you’d like.
Step 5: Testing Your Vending Machine
Once you’ve finished putting your candy vending machine together, it’s time to test it out. Turn it on and make sure that the servo motor is working properly. If everything is working as it should, you’re ready to sneak snacks anywhere you like!
Building a DIY candy vending machine is a fun and creative project that can be done in just a few hours. Not only will you have a fun new toy, but you’ll also have a convenient way to sneak snacks wherever you go. So grab your materials, get creative, and have fun!
