If you haven’t seen these toys offered by the always generous and creative Jason Renshaw, you are missing out. These are awesome templates for DIY materials and videos on how to use them. Plus some design ideas.
For what it’s worth, I was so inspired by the 1:3 tutorial that I made up my own: 1 to 3 lesson template which anyone is welcome to use or adapt. As always, discussions of how to make it better are always appreciated. It is really fun to make materials that are shiny and pretty even though the same thing could easily be accomplished by Xeroxing a black and white text and putting questions up on a blackboard.
