Instructions for Folding a Cruncher

  1. Illustrations Facing Down - Fold all four corners together so that they meet in the middle of the paper, crease firmly and leave them there.
  2. Flip Over - Again fold all four corners together so that they meet in the centre of the paper, give a good crease and leave them there.
  3. Fold in half in one direction, then in half in the other direction.
  4. Finish - Stick your thumbs and first two fingers into the four pockets on the bottom of the cruncher and start crunching.

How to Play the Game:

  1. Spell out your name, or count out the number of letters in your name, at the same time as you open and close your cruncher.
  2. Choose a number from one of the Aboriginal illustrations from one of the inside triangles.
  3. Count out the number you've chosen from the inside triangles, at the same time as you open and close your cruncher.
  4. Again, choose a number from one of the Aboriginal illustrations from the inside triangles, but this time peek under the flap and read the question at the top.
  5. The sentence under the question will tell you where to go to find the answer. Go there and see if you answered right! If not, see what you learned.
  6. Go cruncher crazy and repeat the steps as many times as you want!
