How We Did It
To make Tangrams you really only need two things: felt and scissors. If you wanted a template you can easily find one online and you can use that to cut your shapes. Or you could free-hand cut them.
Start by cutting out your shapes. Tangrams are made with shapes with straight sides, so cut triangles, rectangles, diamonds, triangles, rhombuses, hexagons, and so on. Cut out a nice array of shapes and in different colors.
