Step 1: Materials
Five packages of m&m's - $2.50
Baggie - $.12
Total cost - $2.62
Step 2: Open M&Ms
1. You can tear the corner.
2. You can pinch both sides and pull it open.
3. You can cut it open with scissors.
4. You can tear it open with your teeth if you need one hand to fend of attackers.
Be sure when opening to check and see if you won anything. I would recommend method two if you want to check for a winning package.
After opening pour the m&m's into your container.
