How a DIY Fidget Infinity Cube Works
If you’ve never made one before, you might not know what an infinity cube is!
An infinity cube is 8 blocks connected in such a way that you can flip the blocks and change the shape of the cube without stopping. It’s similar to the concept of a piece of paper that you can unfold over and over but never fully returns to a full page.
You can use an infinity cube with one or two hands. The tactile feeling of the cubes and the repetitive motion makes this an effective fidget for girls with ADHD.
The fidget is small and quiet enough to be used in a classroom setting, and girls of all ages will have tons of fun with the DIY infinity cube.
