Now first of all you take 50 or 60 match boxes and empty out all the matches. Into a jar or tin can so someone else can use them. Then you take the empty matchboxes and glue them together in seven columns so that they're about seven boxes hard. Then you glue the seven columns together so that they look like this.

Series Description
"ZOOM is a children's show comprised of weekly half-hour episodes which showed what youngsters do and think. Seven ZOOMers hosted each episdoe, and the cast changed over run of series. ZOOM premiered locally as ""Summer-Do"" in 1970, and premiered nationally in January 1972. ZOOMers played games, told jokes, riddles (called Fannee Doolees) and stories and did crafts projects...and invited ideas from their audience. The result was an avalanche of ZOOMmail - in the first season, over 200,000 letters. Additionally, the Ubbi Dubbi language was invented by ZOOM."
