    Hi there! We made some recent changes to the Sprout Privacy Policy because, as the newest member of the NBCUniversal family, we decided we should look and feel like the rest of the crew. So what’s new, you ask? For starters, you’ll notice the NBCUniversal overall policy contains new children’s sections for Sprout and our new Universal Kids site, including descriptions of when and how we may collect data from kids. We also added updated contact information in case you want to reach out to us. Our goal is to make the sections directed towards kids both easy to read and understand, and we think we’ve done a great job. And we hope you do too!

    What You´ll Need

    • 2 empty berry cartons
    • Clothes hanger
    • Twine
    • Hole puncher
    • Scissors
    • Tape


    1. Gather all materials.

    2. Using the hole puncher, make two holes in each berry carton. The holes should be toward the top of two opposite sides, about halfway between the corners of the carton.

    3. Cut two long pieces of twine the same length. Thread one piece of twine through the bottom of the hanger, and tie both ends to the holes in one berry container.

    4. Using tape, secure the twine to one pointy end of the hanger.

    5. Repeat with the other piece of twine and berry container on the opposite end of the hanger.

    6. Hang your scale from your finger and place objects into the berry cartons to compare their weights!
