## Step 1: Make a Line

Make a line from 10 triangles
And color as on picture.
Fold all lines you have.

## Step 2: Fold As on Picture

Fold line A_A pic.1
Now you must have pic.2

## Step 3: Fold.

Fold B_B You must get pic.2

Fold C_C and glue b on a

Now you get your toy pic.3

## Step 4: Fold AO BO CO

Fold AO BO CO insaid. Try to get all 6 pic.
Its really possible.

I understand that it's a paper toy and I'm definitely going to make it and have my kids make it. I'm just not sure how to play with it.

A piece of paper with 3 sides is called a flexegon.

You don't have to print it, you could just draw one - it's a simple matter to construct a row of equilateral triangles with a ruler and a compass. Failing that, just print one side - creasing all the lines of the printed side will show the triangles on the back.

No, I mean compass. Haven't you ever constructed mathematical shapes with a drawing compass?

I said constructed, thus:

• Draw a circle with a pair of compasses.
• Do not change the setting of the compass, and mark off steps around the circumference of the circle. You will find that exactly six steps are made.
• Join all six points with ruled lines, you have constructed a regular hexagon.
• Join every other point with ruled lines, you have constructed an equilateral triangle.

If you draw a long straight line, and mark it off into equal lengths, then set your compasses to that length, you can construct a series of identical equilateral triangles along the line. Joining the tops of the triangles makes a strip of triangles, perfect for making flexagons.

If you still don't get it, talk to your mathematics teacher.

oh, i thought you meant measuring 3 60 degree angles at equal lengths then connecting them. and by steps, do you mean how many times you turn the compass?

Even though I know how to do that, you should make an ible on how to construct different geometric shapes with a compass.

Wow, a whole instructable in a comment, I am actually amazed! I could be a critic and ask for pics, but i wont, Nice instructable by the way, both of you guys, kiteman, and Golics. :)
