Gallon Man is easy to make. You just need 5 sheets of different colored construction paper.

  • An entire sheet of paper is a gallon.
  • There are four quarts in a gallon, so for the quarts, fold the paper twice and write Quart on each half.
  • The quarts are divided into pints. For this sheet of paper, fold it into eight squares (1 quart is equivalent to 2 pints; a gallon to 4 pints).
  • Cups are made out of pints. Each pint contains two cups (16 cups make up a gallon), so the next sheet should be folded into 16 squares.
  • Making the head of Gallon Man requires the final piece of paper. Make it look happy by drawing a little face on it. You get Gallon Man when you glue it all together! You must think he's cute, right?
