Spring is coming! And with it, comes the sun! Want to use that solar power to save some energy, money, and have fun? Well, here's how... Materials...
First, you will need to cut a rectanglular flap in the top of your box and fold it back.
Then, line the bottom and the flap of your box with the foil.
Next, tape plastic wrap over the hole you cut. (Be sure to pull it tight and secure it firmly.)
Now, open the top of your box and insert whatever you would like to cook.
Finally, sit your meal out in the sun to cook and enjoy!

Kids love it too. I did it with a group of K-6th graders at a daycare, and it entertained them all!
Will be teaching this to 3-5th graders at my "How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse" class next week!
Great idea! Thank you!
Was that grilled cheese sandwich cooked in that oven? FYI I make paper solar cookers that can cook and reach 450F. Make sure the kids know it is just a warmer. Let them know food poisoning results from holding food at the wrong temperature - too long.
Nice instructable, clear directions.
Now I'm waiting for the sun to test my "pocket oven"...
It is better for melting the cheese...Try it with pizza!
