I am so excited to be back and by the time I was back in town, I was all set to celebrate my boy’s 2nd Birthday and the New Year together. Yes, it won’t have been better, he’s a New Year gift (the very best a mother could have asked for
So, while I am busy taking care of the celebration tomorrow, I thought it would be fun to share a really cool Paper Toy with you all, which can be used for any creative surprise for the New Year Party like add coins with dares written on them for some added fun and slot it out to play, while you wait for the clock to strike 12
Joyceat Casino Top 10 is sharing this cute Slot Machine with us today.
Here’s how you can make one for the New Year’sEve. All you need is a printer, scissors and some glue.
Paper toys can be a great way to teach your child creativity while they think they are making a new play item.Casino top 10recently released a design on a slot machine paper toy that is quick and easy to assemble. Let’s take a quick look at this fun project.
Before we begin, let’s review a couple of things. On the template below, the lines and symbols in green are where you should cut or make incisions. The parts of that are striped or looks like they have a bunch of lines through them are the areas where you will glue.
First, cut out all of the pieces and take care to not overcut. To save time for later, let’s go ahead and make the incisions where all the green lines indicate. Try not to cut more than what is indicated by the green lines as this may make the hole too big. The green stars should be holes for the legs. There is one missing cut on the diagram. If you look on the body where the club and spade symbols are, there is a white line there. That should also have an incision to place the coin.
From this point, the template is fairly straight forward, but here are a few common tips that we recommend.
·Using glue along the inside of the machine body may prove less messy.
·You will need to curve the change return piece on the body as the torso does curve
·The black blocks on the template are for the legs
·The white tabs sticking out the jackpot light and the pull arm are not glue flaps. They insert into the machine.
·A thick piece of cardboard used behind the base (with holes for the legs of course) will give the project more strength.
This little paper toy robot is a fun and easy project that you can do either for your child or together with your child. The best part too is that you won’t have all the added noise that comes with typical slot machines.
Now isn’t that a fun thing to do with your kids and something fun for your friends and family on The New Year Eve too. Thanks Joyce for sharing this wonderful idea.
