Come on down, you're the next contestant in
Speech and Language Plinko!
I'm a big fan of The Price Is Right, especially the old episodes with Bob Barker as the host, and I always longed to play Plinko! In fact, one item on my bucket list was to be on the game show. I even stood in line in Hollywood, but sadly missed the cut off. So when I saw this Instagram (regram) by Pediastaff, I just had to try it for myself!
These are not technical instructions as box sizes and creativity will vary.
Cut a large cardboard box to the size board you desire and bend the backing to make it stand. Use a hot glue gun to adhere clear straws to the sides of the Plinko panel. The straws are cut to make 9 rows leading towards the winning numbers. Paint sides of the board with acrylic paint. Insert colored thumb tacks about 1 inch apart with enough space for marbles Cut glue sticks as marble stoppers at the bottom of the board. Let dry and give it a try.
I did not include graphics because everyone's board size will be different. You may create-your-own or search online for suitable graphics.
* Warning: The thumbtacks did go through the cardboard. I folded the extra cardboard as a backing and duct taped it to make as a stand. You may also cover the thumbtack backs with duct tape or adhere a piece of cardboard to make a backing.
