    • Handle Scissor with care.

    • Exercise caution and have an adult to supervise, if you ever use sewing needle.

  1. Using Needle/Spoke, Make two holes at the brim of paper cup that are diametrically opposite to each other. The diameter of the hole should be "just" enough for the thread to pass through. Take two cotton threads, roughly about 15 cm in length and tie one of the ends on the holes.

    • Take two cotton threads, roughly about 15 cm in length and tie one of the ends on the holes.

    • Let's call this " Brim" thread

  2. Using Needle/Spoke, Make two holes in the extra ridge  at the base of the cup diametrically opposite to each other. The "base" holes must be parallel to the "brim" holes. Take two threads, roughly about 20 cm in length and tie one of the ends at the bottom holes

    • The "base" holes must be parallel to the "brim" holes.

    • Take two threads, roughly about 20 cm in length and tie one of the ends at the bottom holes

    • Coloured threads are preferable

    • Let's call this " Base" thread

    • "Base" threads should be longer the "Brim" threads. Always!

  3. Tie the "brim" threads to the cycle spoke  at a straight line and secure it firmly. Tie the "base" threads to the cycle spoke towards the edges of the spoke at an angle such that the cup still stays upright
    • Tie the "brim" threads to the cycle spoke at a straight line and secure it firmly.

    • Tie the "base" threads to the cycle spoke towards the edges of the spoke at an angle such that the cup still stays upright

  4. Pull the "base" threads apart towards the spoke edges The Cup will flip towards a side, unloading its contents. The Cup will flip towards a side, unloading its contents.
    • Pull the "base" threads apart towards the spoke edges

    • The Cup will flip towards a side, unloading its contents.

  5. Fill the cup with coloured thermocol balls Have a plate beneath to avoid the spillage of cup's contents. Pull the "base" threads apart towards the spoke edges, the cup will displace its contents
    • Fill the cup with coloured thermocol balls

    • Have a plate beneath to avoid the spillage of cup's contents.

    • Pull the "base" threads apart towards the spoke edges, the cup will displace its contents

    • Holes are not at a straight line

    • The Thread pairs are not of same length

    • "Brim" threads are too long resulting in need for much longer spoke

    • "Base" threads are shorter than "Brim" threads.
