If you’re looking for something to do while bearing the droll voice of an out-of-touch professor droning on about the Bubonic Plague, we’ve found the ultimate solution. Make a hexaflexagon!

I didn’t even know what hexaflexagons were until this morning but now I’m mesmerized. Flexagons are essentially flat models in geometry, constructed by folding strips of paper. Flexagons can be folded in certain ways to reveal faces besides the back and front, which means your mind will be blown.

In this tutorial, , a professional mathematician, teaches you how to make your very own. She’ll be releasing another hexaflexagon video in one week.
