Invent and design your own tool

20210203 154643

Use these examples to inspire your own designs for folding tools.

You will need:


  1. Think about what tools would be useful for you? Do you need a finger prod to keep you on task, or perhaps a key that will open any door?
  2. Draw, design and cut out your tools.
  3. Make a hole at the bottom of each tool in the centre, you can use a hole punch or push a pencil through the hole with blu-tak underneath it.
  4. Make a tool case - cut an oblong piece of card that is bigger than your biggest tool. Then make a hole in it at the bottom like all the others.
  5. Thread and attach them all together (we used a ribbon, or a key chain ring).
