  • Step 1

    Form a ring of 5 Speks. Begin wrapping a chain of Speks around the ring until you have a pentagon with 6 Speks on each side. This shape is not flat.

  • Step 2

    Attach a chain of 5 Speks along each edge of the Pentagon. Be sure to leave a gap at each corner. Attach 4 Speks, then 3 Speks, then 2 Speks along the outside to form a star shape.

  • Step 3

    Place the star onto a flat surface and fold each leg back onto the pentagon along the crease.

  • Step 4

    In each channel formed by the folded back triangles, place a chain of 4 Speks. Place a single Spek in the center to fill in the hole. Form a pentagon with 3 Speks on each side and place it over the hole remaining at the top of the larger pentagon.

  • Step 5

    Flip the pentagon over and place another single Spek in the center of the Pentagon. Place a ring of 5 Speks on top of it, then finally place one more Spek on top.

  • Ta-da!
    Take it for a spin!
