P for polygon! (A to Z challenge)

P--we are getting near the end of the alphabet--whew!

I chose P to talk about polygons.  Polygons are basically two-dimensional multiple-sided figures.  Many polygons can be made to be composite shapes.  When I looked up polygon on Wikipedia I thought it was interesting there are even polygons that self intersect.

My oldest child enjoyed making polygon art.  He would make a bunch of dots on a paper at random, then connect some of the dots with a ruler for a perfectly straight line.  Then he would turn them into animal/creatures.  I happened to still have a copy of this piece from four years ago...
Do you do anything with polygons?
