Cool Tools – Linx. “This inexpensive construction kit uses simple plastic hubs to connect grocery store drinking straws. You can assemble quite large — and featherweight — structures in crystalline and geodesic designs.” This will make a great present and activity for our niece and nephews next time we visit.

3D printed cookie rollers | Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories. I’ve seen plenty of 3D printed cookie cutters but I’m falling in love with the rollers here. Love the comparison between creating ancient things with modern tools.

    The 3d cookie rollers are awesome. I don’t have the materials to make my own, but I think most of my friends would love Escher cookies.

    That is smart!

    The Linx kit looks neat, but you can accomplish the same thing—and perhaps more (since your connectors will be flexible)—for far less money by snipping pipe cleaners into short pieces. Just bend a piece to your desired angle and stick each end into a straw!

    Marsha – Thanks for the tip! I think one of the things that appeals to me about the Linx is the precise angles that will help you construct geometric shapes. But of course the kids wouldn’t care about that nearly as much.
