Plinko Piggy Bank

My husband always comes home, with TONS of change in his pockets, and it adds up over time. For this month's Peg Board Challenge, I decided to make collecting change more docorative and fun, through a Plinko Piggy Bank! We started with a small piece of peg board, and used golf tees for the pegs. With a little help from my husband and brother in-law, we constructed a box and dadoed grooves, in which the pegboard, luan for backing, and a front piece of plexiglass all slid into. We then cut a slit into our top piece for the coins to drop through, and attatched it using 2 screws, which can easily be removed. We allowed room for the change to collect at the bottom, and once your bank is full, you can remove the top, and cash in your coins for a little money towards your next project. A bit of paint, and assembling, and there you have it! A fun new way to save up that loose change!
