Geometry box: Lighter Tamarind seeds

Geometry box: Heavier Stones/Pebbles

Geometry box: Lighter Erasers

Place a tiffin box instead of geometry box. You can try this activity with other objects also.

Tiffin box: Lighter Tamarind seeds

Tiffin box: Heavier Stones/Pebbles

Tiffin box: Lighter Erasers
