This printable in only available to our members right now.  

My daughter loves origami and has been especially interested in modular origami, in which one basic shape can be combined with others to make a variety of three-dimentional shapes, the cube being the most popular. Remembering the fun we have had with the large colored die I made a few years ago, I wondered what it would take to make one that would be a solid color on each side.

I made a white one, colored it with crayon, and unfolded each piece to figure out how the cube worked. Then I copied it onto the printable I’m sharing with you today. It was a lot of work, but it was so fun to see the finished product! I hope you enjoy it. We have used the cube to play on our candyland board, and a few other improvised games, but those will have to wait because I plan on making them into formal printables in the coming weeks. For now, the joy of the puzzle is enough for a post!
