Paper Cup Experiment

At Extension today we had a task to make a paper cup. We followed the instructions step by step. This experiment is sort of like origami.  At first I didn't really understand the instructions but then it was quite easy. If I had to say what I was like making it I would probably say it was a little bit hard until I passed the 2nd or 3rd step. After that it was easy peasy! 


To make this all you need is a pice of paper which is shaped as a square and some water. If you don't have a square paper. Fold a rectangle's top corner down to meet the edge. Then cut the remaining. 


We watched a little bit of a video on TED Talks. He explained what origami is. There we saw some very complicated pieces of art. 


We did this for some fun and to see if it works. Watch this video to learn how to do it and see if it works!

  1. A very clear instructional video Kaycee. Your post is very clear in supporting the instructions needed to make a cup. Well done.
