  • Step 1Print your Reef Kaleidocycle and colour in. Each row of triangles will become 1 image. Keep the colour theme consistent in each image. Cut out the template. Adult supervision is recommended when using scissor.
  • Step 2Fold (design facing inwards) along all of the dotted grey lines. Fold (design facing outwards) along all of the solid grey lines.
  • Step 3Place glue on the blank triangles and the two tabs on the side of the template.
  • Step 4Fold the pointed base designs around to sit on the blank triangles at the top of the design and secure in place.
  • Step 5The two tabs should now overlap. Fold these into the opposite open end and secure in place. Your Kaleidocylce is now ready to use.
