Mission Possible!

It is, indeed, possible to fit yourself through an index card.

That is, one that is torn into strips then bent and twisted together into a hoop.

I was actually able to do it by cutting it and didnt have to rip it or twist it together.

The zig-zag tearing (daughter said using scissors may be "cheating") solution may have been what the students were expected to come up with, but tearing/twisting was the first and only way our kids figured it out on their own. They were very impressed with the zig-zag solution but made themselves feel better by claiming their twists made it more secure to get through without breaking. A fun challenge for sure!
