How to Make Three Dimensional Solids from Paper

Watch as we make three dimensional ‘solids’ from paper. We used 90lb water color paper and our Silhouette Cameo to make the five regular solids as discovered by Pythagoras in the 6th century BC.

We were inspired by the book “String, Straightedge and Shadow” by Julia Diggins which we are reading for our geometry unit for homeschool.

If you don’t have a Silhouette Cameo to cut out these shapes, don’t worry! Just download the templates HERE and make them on your own. All you need is a printer, scissors and tape!
