This toy is a fabulous math lesson for your young friends (or yourself) and is also--as I've learned--a nice stress toy for kids with ADD.

The pattern includes a photo tutorial on how to seam and fold the hexaflexagon as well as links to videos on where this genius thing came from.

I can't wait to see the modifications you make! Enjoy!
