Welcome to math crafts! Math can be fun, honestly!
You don't believe it, then rummage here!

On this page you will find ideas for handicrafts, puzzles, puzzle games, tips for apps and websites and short films. All of them have something to do with math. With them you can experience exciting, funny, tricky and creative gadgets at home alone or with your parents.
