Make Two Basic Shapes
The Cube: This is about the simplest shape to make.
You will need 12 non bendy straws and eight 'T joints'.
Simply slide a T joint into each end of 4 straws, bend each 'T joint' to a 90 degree angle then join them up with the other straws.
The Pyramid: You will need 8 non bendy straws, 4 'T joints' and 4 simple joints.
Join 4 straws together with the 4 'T joints' each with one leg sticking up at the corner.
Slide four straws into the four free legs then tie the top together with your four simple joints. How easy is that ?
