How many triangles?


This is the latest fad in our household.... K'nex. The boys received a small set for their birthdays, and they quickly fell in love. I managed to find a teenager selling his huge boyhood Knex collection for a pittance (bless you, Craigslist!!), then Alfie realized Knex had motorized sets and got into it as well, and all of a sudden we've got quite a haul!

Since this weekend's Photo Hunt theme is Triangles, I asked one of the boys to build me a 3-D diamond. Can you tell me how many triangles you can find in the structure? I've lost count!

That looks like fun. I think I see at least 18 but that's with a quick guestimate.

Had never heard of K'nex before until reading your entry. They look like a more advanced version of Lego!

Hey, my kids love Knex, too, but the junior version.

Love your take on this weeks theme. Great photo too! Don't know if I can count all the triangles.

I found it hard to find triangles in my house this week but I did finally find some.

Mine's up and ready...come on over!
