Try and see if you can create a fortress out of a simple newspaper. Think you can? It will require some engineering genius, which we know are skills our Junior inventors have!
The aim is to create a fortress out of newspaper that can house either you or even one of your pet animals!
What you need:
Glue or stapler or tape
Start the challenge by following these steps
Take as many sheets of newspaper as you want. (the bigger the newspaper the better)
Roll every paper so they are tighter for building a structure.
For easier rolling, the trick is to start with taking a center page of a newspaper, then hold a corner of the paper and start turning it inwards using your thumb and forefinger.
Midway, apply a drop of glue on the paper, continue rolling over the glue. Keep rolling the paper in the same motion until the paper finishes. Secure the end with a small piece of tape or stapling it.
Create as many triangles as you can with your newspaper rolls. Use at least 25 tubes so you can create a big one fortress! You know, so many enemies outside 😉
Secure the triangles together to build whatever size structure you want! The size will depend on how many triangles you made.
Just make sure you have enough for the roof and lets your imagination do the rest! You can play with differents shapes and learn about geometry! A little trick, place a blanket as a roof so no one can see you!
