Hexaflexagon Party!

So I’m loving the hexaflexagon video series by Vi Hart – check them out starting here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIVIegSt81k
In honor of hexaflexagon month I’m throwing a hexaflexagon party on Monday 22 October – 10am-1pm at the Holy Covenant Church basement. We’ll make and decorate hexaflexagons, maybe watch some more Vi Hart videos, play with pattern blocks and tanagrams and whatever other ideas people bring. Pack your lunch and we can eat when we’re done playing. I think this would be fun for most ages. Let me know if you’d like to join us! Kayla – klarc.hunt@gmail.com

Watching more Vi Hart videos I’m getting more ideas for other concepts we can explore during our Hexaflexagon/Math party on the 22nd – mobius strips, 3D polygons, prime numbers, various number pattern discoveries, fractals… the list goes on! Materials you can bring along to help facilitate the fun would be markers or other coloring stuff, scissors, a geometry set and anything else that you think might be fun/helpful.
