Weighing Balance

To make this weighing balance you can use lids of shoe polish or inner cases of matchbox. Make holes in each of the two lids or cases. Cut out 6 pieces of string of equal length and pass each string through each of the holes in the lids/ cases. One end of each strings is fixed to the base of lids/ cases by tying thick knots at the ends. The other loose ends are grouped into three each and tied to the two ends of a bamboo or wooden stick. Tie a strong thick thread or string at the centre of the stick in equilibrium. Your balance is ready to weigh things of your choice.

You could also use lemon to make the weighing balance. Just cut the lemon in two equal halves and hollow the contains out and make it in the same manner as above.
