Hi, I'm back! Today I'll be introducing the top-notch technology! That's right, it's...

A Decision Maker!

Have you ever had that time where you couldn't make up a decision? This'll help you. A LOT. I use it A LOT.

Let's get started, shall we?

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: GATHER STUFF!

1. Paper

2. Scissors

3. Pencil/pen

4. The decisions you can't make!

Step 2: CUT OFF THE BOTTOM! FOLD IT! FOLD IT AGAIN!

Okay, I know this step sounds like a lot of steps, but it's not really. You see the first picture, fold it so the edge is symmetrically meets at the end. Cut off the extra rectangle to get the the triangle in the second picture. Fold the triangle symmetrically and unfold it to get the line in the middle.

Step 3: MORE TRIANGLES!

You see the center point in the square, now, right? Make all of the square's edges meet the middle to get a smaller square!

Step 4: TRIANGLES...

Flip the square over and repeat the same steps (bringing the corners to the center). It'll make the square even smaller!

Step 5: FINALLY....

Fold that square symmetrically. Pop the four squares on the back. By that it means, there will be four "holes" to shove your fingers in, and then pop them up like in the second picture.

Step 6: ADD YOUR DECISIONS

Retrace your steps back to the first step. Alright, now it's time to use your indecision to write down EIGHT decisions in each small triangle displayed. On the other side, right down one to eight.

HOW TO PLAY

Pick a random number and alternate from horizontal to vertical the amount the number is. Whatever side landing on, choose one of the four numbers, and open it up to see what you have to do!

I hope this helped!
