It should look kinda like the example above. Except it would be squares lol.

Make two crosses with the 4 long straws put the ends of these together so that one square is made then make two right angles with the four short straws and place them at the other side of each cross to make three squares in a diagonal line. :)

### How many straws would you need to make a dodecahedron?

There are various types of dodecahedrons. A regular dodecahedron
has twelve faces, each with five edges. Altogether there are thirty
edges.
So you could make a regular dodecahedron with thirty straws, or
one very long one!
You could even make one with sixty straws, but you would have to
join them together in pairs to make the thirty edges!
