Materials you'll need:
-Funnel (I got a pack of 3 for $3.50 at Home Depot)
-PVC pipe (I used 3/4 inch) ($2.93 for 10 feet at Home Depot)
-2 PVC 90 degree elbows ($0.42 each at Home Depot)
-2 PVC tees ($0.96 each at Home Depot)
-1 PVC cross ($2.55 each at Home Depot)
-PVC pipe cutters (these will make the project SO much easier and are so worth it if you don't already have them. You can get them for less than $20.)
-measuring tape and Sharpie
-spray paint (optional)
-PVC cement (optional)
Note: make sure that you get the same size PVC pipe/ fittings fore very piece! I did 3/4 in. and like the size.
Cut your pieces and assemble!
Use a measuring tape and Sharpie to mark the length of all of your pieces. Then start cutting away!
Lengths of piping you'll need:
-5 pieces cut to 3 inches
-2 pieces cut to 4 inches
-2 pieces cut to 8-10 inches (based on preference, this will be the height of the toy)

We have used numerous materials in our funnel toys including water, rice, popcorn and sand! They're definitely a class favorite already!
