  • Reflective Paper
  • Saran Wrap

Step 2: TOOLS YOU'LL NEED

To make a solar oven you will need:

  • Scissors or exacto knife
  • Ruler
  • Glue or Tape (for people who aren't using reflective sticky paper)

Step 3: DECORATING

This step is optional and you can do this anytime you want through out the process

Decorate your solar oven any way you want with paint, markers, pens, etc. however you want.

Step 4: STARTING THE BUILDING PROCESS

1. In the middle of your pizza box with a ruler draw a square and leave a little bit of space between the sides.

2. Once you are done with that cut out the sides and the bottom part of the square you outlined making your square now a U shape making you able to pull up the cardboard making it able to go up and down.

Step 5: CUTTING AND PUTTING ON THE REFLECTIVE PAPER

1. Get out your ruler and measure each side in the inside of the pizza box including the flap you made in step 4.

2. Once your done measuring all the sides of the pizza box put your measurements down on your reflective paper and start to cut.

Step 6: GLUEING, TAPEING, OR STICKING

1. Once you are done with step 5 you have to glue, tape, or stick your reflective paper down on your solar oven so make sure you're putting the right cutouts in the right place.

Step 7: PUTTING ON THE SARAN WRAP

1. First you have to cut out a nice square of saran wrap a little bit bigger than the cut out you made in step 4.

2. Then neatly tap each side of the saran wrap onto the inside of the box that is open.

Step 8: ADDING THE BAMBOO SKEWERS

Now all you have to do is tape the top of a bamboo skewer to the top of the cut out card board flap and rest the bottom on the end of the solar oven.

Step 9: COOKING

Now that your done with your solar oven you can cook whatever you would like.
