What You Need

For this challenge, you’ll need two tin cans, one smaller than the other. These will form the stove. And another tin that can sit on top of the stove for the pot stand.

Tools

You could make this with just a penknife. We used a penknife and a bradawl. If you want a really need finish, use a drill and a file to remove sharp edges.

Remember only to let your kids help with the parts that are appropriate for their age and ability. Always supervise with tools. Cutting cans can result in very sharp edges, so please be careful.
