Make a coffee cup* with a piece of paper! Investigate how a flat sheet of paper can transform (almost magically) into a 3D model through folding and creasing. Explore fractions as you fold your paper into half, quarters and eighths! A simple square can be folded to create rectangles, triangles and heptagons – providing the inspiration for much of the flat-pack furniture we have in our homes
*Warning – not for actual coffee! Why not use your paper cup to store paperclips or rubbers, or as a gift to hold chocolate/cake, or perhaps to collect change at a charity event?
