    What You´ll Need

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

    Instructions

    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!

    Done!
