Make beautiful kaleidoscopic patterns to decorate your world with this spiral-making bot!


1  Gather your Cubes, building bricks, and other materials.

2  Attach the bushing onto the Motor Cube's axles so the X-shape is facing out.

3  Stack the Battery Cube and the Motor Cube onto one of the 4 x 6 bricks, so the Motor Cube's axle faces out.

4  Stack the other 4 x 6 brick on top of the Motor Cube and the Battery Cube, and wrap the rubber band around the center. 

5  Slide a marker in on each side of the rubber band.

6  Insert the X-shape side of the bushing on the Motor Cube into the center of a 4 x 8 plate.

7  Place the 4 x 8 plate on the table, slightly angle the markers, switch on the Battery Cube, and get your art on!
