Rubik’s Cube:

    Everyone can solve a Rubik’s Cube if you make it. You may be thinking a Rubik’s Cube is very complex but with a big cardboard box, some duct tape and a sharpie, and you will be transformed into an impossible to solve toy.  You can go to any retail store and buy the five different colors of duct tape that are on a Rubik’s Cube, for $2.99 each.  The five colors you will need are green, orange, white, yellow, red and blue. $1.08 will be all you need to buy a large cardboard box at your local walmart. The Rubik’s Cube can be easily assembled by placing the duct tape in large strips down the side of the card board once you cover the side draw a 3 by 3 grid with the sharpie.
