“I enjoyed the planning part most putting this project together, drawing it and then getting the parts. I found the structure hard to put together.” John, Age 9


  • pencil and paper
  • four cardboard tubes
  • glue
  • cardboard
  • scissors

My Instructions:

  1. First, I weighed my can to have an idea how strong my structure needed to be to hold the weight.
  2. Then I drew my design.
  3. I placed my four cardboard tubes apart.
  4. Then I cut a piece of cardboard, then I glued it on top of the four paper rolls.
  5. Next, I cut another piece of cardboard and put it on top of my first piece to make it sturdier.
  6. Then I made a table.
