Things to Do on WonderHowTo (01/11 - 01/17)

WonderHowTo is made up of niche communities called Worlds. If you've yet to join one (or create your own), get a taste below of what's going on in the community. Check in every Wednesday for a roundup of new activities and projects. 

This week has been an exciting one. The community is really flourishing, and we've been seeing some top-notch contributions. We'd like to to extend a warm welcome to all of our newcomers, and anybody who has been lurking—join in! Write a tutorial. Post to a World. We want to see what you've got.

Below, this week's highlights: A self-portrait phoneography challenge, heart-shaped hard-boiled eggs, homemade explosives, a beautiful meteor shower photo, & more.
