Today is SHAPE DAY!!! I picked extra fun things, like learning about and building your very own hexaflexagon! Don’t worry, there are several Hexaflexagon templates for you to follow. Feel free to do any (or all) of these fun activities, games and worksheets. And, don’t forget to share your work in the comments of this post, so that everyone can see your spectacular Hexaflexagons.

And my very favorite (most fun) part… share a photo of your drawing or of any of the other activities! I’ve purposefully added a lot of options for parents who need to keep their kiddos occupied for more time and to allow you to cater to your children’s preferences. Hope that you enjoy it as much as my kids did!
