Makes snack time fun • Only 5 steps • A staple for your little one's room!
Does your little tiger ever go wild when you pass by a gumball machine, whether it it's in a mall or at an arcade? We get it! That's why we created this Malty-tastic munchies machine that lets you bring the magic home—but gives you the flexibility to put whatever you want in it!
We filled this one with Malty-imprinted M&Ms (we couldn't help ourselves!!), but you can certainly fill this munchies machine with healthier options too, such as berries or nuts! What's great is that no matter what the snack, this machine makes it double the fun.

Hugs and roars,
Your Malty Friends 💙
Paint 1 terra cotta pot, 1 terra cotta saucer, and
1 small wood ball a marvelous Malty blue hue.
Glue the ball to the bottom of the saucer.
This will serve as the lid for your munchies machine!
Paint Malty's face—her eyes, nose, smile, and whiskers—onto a small glass craft bowl. This is where you'll put
Glue the glass bowl to the bottom of the pot.
Place the lid on top of the bowl. Glue a strip of yellow felt around the pot to serve as a scarf, then glue blue and black pipe cleaners to the pot and lid to serve as the ears and tail. If desired, paint a slot and opening on the pot to mirror a classic gumball machine.
Fill with munchies!
