Aperiodvent, Day 9: Platonic solid decorations

This superb set of printable nets for platonic solids features a variety of Christmas-themed designs, including santa, snowflakes, and even the Baby Jesus (not sure what that has to do with Christmas, but ok). You can print, cut out and assemble the cubes, tetrahedra, octahedra, dodecahedra and icosahedra, and the tabs can be taped or glued. Great for an end-of-term maths lesson, or a family night in making decorations for the tree.

This is part of the Aperiodical Advent Calendar. We’ll be posting a new surprise for you each morning until Christmas!
