Can You Make 4 Triangles with Only 6 Straws?

Are you up for a challenge?  Get 6 straws.  (Pencils that are all the same size, or toothpicks will also work.)  Can you make 4 triangles–without bending or cutting any of the straws?

Got an idea?  Check it with our answer.  The solution:  Make a pyramid!  Put 3 on the table in a triangle.  Put the other 3 like a tepee or pyramid.  Make sure you let yourself think out of normal bounds!
