Don’t forget to post your Windball adventures on Makedo's Facebook page.
I can't believe nobody has mentioned the word &quot;rhombicosidodecahedron&quot; yet.<br> <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhombicosidodecahedron" rel="nofollow">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhombicosidodecahedron</a><br> <br> I mean if you keep calling this thing a &quot;Giant Windball&quot;, how's anyone going to know what you're talking about?<br> ;-)
<p>rhombicosidodecahedron is probably not even in the vocabulary of most math teachers--which bothers me a lot since I am a math teacher.</p>
<p>Sometimes it is nice to discover the academic name for a thing.</p><p>For example, I think it was just a few months ago when I discovered this thing,</p><p><a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Trammel-of-Archimedes/" rel="nofollow">https://www.instructables.com/id/Trammel-of-Archime...</a></p><p>has a name other than &quot;bullsh!t grinder&quot;.</p>
Haha you are so right! Bring on the supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
<p>The one I am planning will be more in the Christmas ornament size. I am going to use cardstock and hold it together with glue stick.</p>
<p>I finally had the chance to make it now that my daughter is old enough (4yrs). Her and her cousins (some older some younger) had a blast with it. After cutting out all the cardboard squares, we had all the kids &amp; adults draw/paint/create artwork on them, and once assembled, it kept the kids busy outside for hours and hours!</p>
hhmmmm coraplast from old signs instead of cardboard would make this more weather resistant... very interesting idea
This really appeals to me. So inspiring! You could have a party with 30 guests and have them all decorate a piece of cardboard. <br>OR You could take 30 LP album covers (!) and use the fronts of them. Or 15 and cut them up! Maybe someone has already done this?? <br> <br>

That is a great idea! I really like to see such creative things! :)
I love it.<br>My weekend is now planned. Thank you.
Would love to see a photo of your Windball when you complete it! :D
Here it is. I had to invent my own cleats to hold it together. They didn't work very well so duct tape to the rescue again. I think the makedo gear would be much much much easier and neater.
LOOKS GREAT! :D thanks for sharing!
This looks like tons of fun! How many clips would this take?
This project would take around 60 makedo pins and clips. :) Makes building it a lot easier and simpler.
Perfect for a beach!
Very nice, thanks for sharing.
It's an industrialized tumbleweed!<br> <br> Looks like a lot of fun too.&nbsp; LOVE!
Thanks! It's loads of fun! :D
