My girls actually had fun with this one.  It just took longer than we thought.  All you need are straws, ruler, scissors, and tape…easy peasy!

Repeat until you have four triangles then cut up six more straws and create four additional triangles for a total of eight.   Lay four triangles out side by side with only the bottom corners touching and tape the corners together. Repeat for the other four triangles to create two sets of four.

Place a straw along the bottom of the four triangles and secure it by placing a piece of tape around the straw and the center of each triangle. Repeat for the other set of four triangles.

Place a straw along the top of the four triangles and tape around the straw and the point of each triangle.  Do the same for the other set of four triangles.

 

 

Here are the finished products. 🙂
