Magic Snowflake Paper Toy

For all the impatient kids who are tired of bending over their their iPads or TV-shows (and perhaps even some of their parents?), I have this little Christmas present. If you have never had a kaleidocycle in your hands, it's about time you did. This is a cunning little paper construction, and easy to build yourself - and I have made you one with festive and seasonal snowflakes. 

All you have to do is get this PDF, print it on regular paper (perhaps the heavier quality, if you have it), cut, trace and glue. I took a few photos to show you - see the mini-tutorial here. 

It folds endlessly into itself, giving you lots of time to think of something nice and relax for a bit. Think of it as a very low tech fidget spinner, and even something you might decorate the seasonal table with. 

I even made you a primitive GIF to show you how it works.....

Happy Lillejuleaften as we say in Danish - or 'Little Christmas Eve'

    1. Thank you, Sabine from Worm, and a Frohe Weihnachten for you too! Not sure if you have a word for 'Lillejuleaften' in German! :-)

  2. Cute and thanks! I shared this link in the recent All Things Paper newsletter.

    1. How great is that! Thank you so much - hope your readers will have fun with these, and the cherry blossoms as well. I hope to find the time for a nice spring project this year, around Easter or Hanami, perhaps. Stay tuned! best regards, Tina
