A cardboard box is a great starting point for building a pyramid. It already contains a square bottom attached to four equal walls. All that remains is for the walls to be cut into the proper shape and folded together.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Find a cardboard box. The bottom should be a square. The top should be easily removable. And the sides should be at least the size of the bottom.

  2. 2

    Cut off the top of the box without damaging the sides.

  3. 3

    Measure one of the sides of the box at the top edge. Then make a mark directly in the middle. Make marks in the middle of the other three sides as well.

  4. 4

    Cut from the midpoint to each corner of the box on each side. When you are done, you should have a square bottom with four isosceles triangles for sides.

    Fold the four triangles together until they meet in the middle. Use glue or tape to join them.

Tips and warnings

  • Draw any bricks or other decorations you want on the sides before you cut. It will be harder to do after you've made the pyramid.
