About: I like speedcubing.

I will teach you how to make a toy like the one called "Jacob's Latter" found here: http://www.amazon.com/Fun-Express-Jacobs-Ladder-Toy/dp/B005EGKSVQ

Step 1: Things You Need

Things you need:
1. cardboard (If you have thin plywood use that instead)
2. ribbon.
3. hot glue.

OK now lets get started!

Step 2: Cut Materials

Cut 12  2 in. x 3 in. pieces of cardboard (or plywood).
Cut  3 pieces of ribbon 30 in. long.

Step 3: Glue It All Together!

If you don't understand the pictures, just follow the diagram. The left and right ribbons are the same. the middle one does the same but  mirror image. Glue goes every where in between the pairs of cardboard. NO GLUE GOES ON THE OUTSIDE. ALL GLUE GOES ON EVERYWHERE IN BETWEEN THE PAIRS OF CARDBOARD.  Make sure you leave some space between the pairs of sheets of cardboard (more than I did in the pictures).
