Introduction: The Valuable Coffee Jar

What's the last place anyone would think of looking for valuables? That's right, your coffee jar.


This quick and easy project just requires a few supplies:

  • Transparent Tape
  • Scissors
  • Empty Coffee Jar
  • Instant Coffee Grains
  • Paper
  • Pen

Step 1: Roll Up Your Paper

Roll up your paper and hold it inside the empty coffee jar, leaving a little bit of space between the paper and the inside of the jar.

Step 2: Tape the Paper

Tape the paper, making sure it's rolled up in the same way as the previous step.

Step 3: Mark Your Paper Roll and Cut It

Place the paper back into your empty jar, and mark where it meets the top of the jar. Then, cut on the mark you made.

Step 4: Fill the Empty Space Around the Paper

Fill the space between your paper and the inside of the jar with the coffee grounds, making sure to fill it to the top.

Step 5: Place Your Valuables Inside

There you have it! A perfect place to stash your valuables.

Step 6: Can You Tell the Difference?

One jar has the valuables, and one is full of coffee. Can you guess which one has the valuables? :)
