+ box cutter / knife
+ straight edge
+ spray adhesive, or glue

It's great to have a printable template, though. See my comment above :)
You should tag this with the following tags: Kids, toy, toys, education, art This is great. I'm making a set for my kids. Or two.
I made up six sets, cut out of different colors of cardstock, and added a couple of extra shapes from the offcuts, and my kids & their freind played with them for HOURS today. Thanks for posting it!
This is a great tool for freeing up some creativity - I'm definitely going to make a set. Thanks!
Neat idea :) You could paint the bits different colours, too! Might have to do this (on work time - LOL)
