Balancing Act

When Davey has too much cereal pour out of the box at breakfast, he decides he will invent something to remedy this. He gathers up household items and begins pilling them up on each other, leaning them on each other, lining things up perfectly and although it's very precarious Davey is sure it will work out. Each item sets off a chain reaction that ends in the perfect amount of cereal being poured! He gets everything set up and ready to go, factoring in anything that could possibly go wrong. Just as he's about to try it out his Mum comes home early, and the door whacks into it, setting things off in entirely the wrong way and it collapses. Maybe it was just a little too precarious after all.
