Step 1: print the kaleidocycle template onto white card stock. You need two copies: Part one and Part two.
Step 2: Draw a design on the triangles on your template. You can draw the same design in each triangle or you can draw different designs.
Step 3: Go over your pencil lines with a sharpie. Go back and erase your pencil lines when you are done.
Step 4: Color in your designs.
Step 5: Carefully cut out your kaleidocycle along the outside lines and tabs.
Step 6: Carefully fold along all of the lines and tabs. Make sure that you put sharp creases on your folds!
Step 7: Attach both parts of your kaleidocycle at the A and B tabs using a glue stick.
Step 8: Fold each section together to create a pyramid shape. Make sure that each part is stuck together well before going on to the next part.
Step 9: This is what the first pyramid looks like.
Step 10 :You should end up with a chain of 6 pyramids.
Step 11: Slide the last tab on one end into the slot on the other end to create a hexagon.
