Chart paper/ card stock paper
child safe glue
Stickers/old color magazines/color and paint brush
Step 1: Cutting the parts
Each box requires 6 pieces.
This is a good size to make. Ofcourse you can make them smaller or larger. Just make sure the length is double the width (L=Wx2)
1 x 2 inches paper makes a smaller but sturdier cube.
Step 2: Preliminary folds
Flip and do the same to the other paper.
Open the papers and stack them.
Make 2 more such templates for 6 pieces.
Step 3: Assembling
Please see http://www.instructables.com/id/Jackson-Cube-EASY-Beginner-Unit-Origami/ for the details.
This makes 1 cube. Repeat these steps for making more cubes.
Make many of them as they will be sabotaged more often.
Step 4: Lettering
You can also use newspaper cuttings to decorate the cubes(this I just now thought of while writing the ible, so no pics).
You can also pre draw them and assemble them afterwards.
If your toddler tears or chews the boxes. Make another one to replace the damaged piece.
