Strawbees are a brilliant construction toy usually used for connecting straws to build many creative things (bridges, isometric shapes, toy animals, etc.). Here I add my own "Strawbee Bars" and contstruct card-stock spheres.
- card stock
Optional (getting fancy) items:
- to make a chain
- hot-glue gun (for hot-gluing Strawbee connectors together)
- to add LEDs
- conductive copper tape
- multimeter (just to check conductivity)
- button cell batteries
Submitted as part of the May 2015 Strawbees Build Night which was held at Parts and Crafts in Somerville, Massachusetts.
