Illuminating Geometry kits now available to buy online.

Platonic solids

I am delighted to say that you can now purchase illuminating geometry kits from Proto-Pic. Here is the link :

It was hard to know what to put in the kits but this is what I went for in the end:

Icosahedron kit– enough to make one icosahedron (20 sides).

Platonic Solids kit – everything you need to make a tetrahedron (four sides), a cube (six sides), an octohedron (eight sides), a dodecaherdon, (tweleve sides), and an icosahedron (twenty sides).

Perhaps you are having a party, you might like to try my 10 icosahderon kit .

If you are looking for activities for a class we have two class size kits, octohedron class kit (makes 36 eight sided shapes)  or  icoashedron class kit (makes 36 twenty sided shapes).

The kits have everything you need except a glue stick and a battery. We haven’t  included the batteries as there are lots of regulations when it comes to shipping them however they are available at most supermarkets, look for a CR2032 coin cell battery. If you are making them with a class or group of brownies, cubs, guides, or scouts you can buy them in bulk from educational suppliers such as Hope Education.

I will be at Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire on Sunday 10th April with my Illuminating Geometry lanterns. See you there! Better get the car packed up!
