Make a DIY Fidget Toy With This Infinity Cube Craft
So easy, you'll want TWO infinity cubes (and beyond!)
Fidget toys can help improve concentration and dexterity while also calming and uplifting the brain. Enter the Infinity Cube: with ever-changing patterns and a satisfying, quiet “clunk” of the wooden blocks, this fidget toy is fun for kids to make, and hard to put down!
What You’ll Need:
8 wooden cubes
Colorful duct tape
Step 1: Place your cubes in two rows of four cubes each.
Step 2: Decorate all sides of the cubes!
Step 3: Flip the cubes and decorate the inside faces too!
Step 4: Tape together the front face of the cubes.
Tape the top left, top right, bottom left, and bottom right pairs of cubes together.
Step 5: Tape together the side faces of the cubes.
Turn the entire thing on its side and add pieces of tape horizontally, connecting the two center cubes. Repeat with the other side.
Step 6: Tape together the bottom face of the cubes.
Flip your cubes over so that the taped-up side is facing down. Tape the left two blocks and right two blocks together vertically.
Step 7: Tape together the inside faces of the cubes.
Open your infinity cube so that the inside faces are exposed. Tape the top two and bottom two cubes together.
Step 8: Your infinity cube is now complete! Enjoy!
Tip: Reinforce each piece of tape by adding another strip to the opposite side.
