Introduction: Jumping Paper Clips

When it's raining outside and you have nothing to do take a boring paper clip and make it jump!

Step 1: Materials

All you need is a paper clip.

Step 2: Unfold

Unfold your paper clip so that one end overlaps the other.

Step 3: Pull

Pull until l the two ends are about one inch from each other.

Step 4: Push

Now you have to push them back together until the two ends lock.

Step 5: Drop

Now drop the paperclip from above one foot. It should jump back up very high.
