## Introduction: Popsicle Sticks Platonic Solids: Cube

Alohagems is working on a project about Platonic Solids using Popsicle sticks for school project classroom math display center or for home decorations.

There are five platonic Solids:

A cube has six faces (square), eight vertices and twelve edges.

Materials:

24 Popsicle sticks

tacky glue or hot glue gun

## Step 1: The 12 Edges

• Choose 24 good Popsicle sticks.
• Glue two sticks together forming a right angle (90 degrees). (See pictures). Let is dry.

## Step 2: The Faces

• Prepare four edges.
• Make a square and glue it one by one.
• Let it dry.
• Make 2 square faces as seen on the pictures.

## Step 3: The Cube

• Prepare two squares and 4 edges.
• Glue 4 edges one at a time to the square face. Let it dry. Hot glue gun dries faster. Add the last square face.

## Step 4: Have Fun!

I had fun doing this project with my 2 years old daughter!
