Few of these models could be imagined by looking at the flat 'nets' but glue them together step by step and the shapes appear. Once the models are made, there are many ways to decorate them; Paint, felt tip pens, coloured pencils or enamel can all be used, or invent your own decorations.
These models make fine decorations, and they can be hung from threads to make attractive mobiles.
A great sequel to Making Shapes 1, this book enhances the fun with more challenging shapes. The Great Dodecahedron, a Stellated Icosahedron, etc... or as my 4 year old son calls them... "pretty starballs, daddy!"
As with the first book, all the 'nets' are unadorned with pre-printed art, leaving you full range of creative freedom to colour them any way you can dream of.
Overall, another winner in my book. Now all I need is some more ceiling space... there's going to be a LOT of mobiles hanging from my son's bedroom ceiling by the end of the Christmas holidays. :)
