    Silly but fun project

    I was in full assembly line production this weekend making about a dozen of these for my grand kids. Its a silly little project but it makes them so happy. I found the plans on a scroll saw site awhile back, built a prototype and made a few changes.
    One has bubblegum, one has skittles. I filled one with M&M's but it mysteriously disappeared this morning. Seems it made it's way onto my wifes desk at school. She teaches English and Social Studies to to 7th and 8th graders and she says she needs the sugar rush during the day

    Not silly at all! A silly project is a complete waste of time, energy, and wood - that qualifies by none of the established criteria.

    No project that converts wood into smiles is silly.
