1. Make a Perfect Circle Without a Bow
In math or art class, you’ve probably asked to draw a circle. However, turn out you forget to put the bow in your bag and left it on your room desk. You’re not good in drawing symmetrical circle either and everyone else in the class are using their own bow.
All you need is basically just 3 pencils and 3 rubbers! Tie all the 3 pencils together with the rubbers to make a triangle shape like below picture:
You can set the diameter length of the circle by adjusting the pencils. If you want to make the circle smaller, move the two pencils closer to each other. And if you want to make a bigger circle, move the two pencils further from each other.
Now that you don’t have to annoy your friend by keep borrowing a bow from them, you also can make circle anywhere and anytime just with pencils and rubbers!
