Match this 

You will need 6 matches (make sure they are "dead" ones) (You could use "lolly sticks" or cocktail sticks or pencils  as long as they are all the same length)
It is obvious that you could use 3 of the matches to construct an equilateral triangle (equilateral = all 3 sides the same length)
You could use 5 of the matches to construct TWO equilateral triangles.
If you had 7 matches you could construct THREE equilateral triangles.
THE CHALLENGE Using only the 6 matches you must construct SIX equilateral triangles. (You must not bend or break any of the matches!)
