Fun STEM Project: Make an Easy Pop-Up Card

I showed my son this video below on how to make an easy Pop-Up card. He watched it once and said that he “got it,” and then went off road, making two cards of his own.

Fun STEM Project: Make an Easy Pop-Up CardIt’s a fun and easy way to introduce STEM (or really this is more STEAM – Science Technology Engineering Art and Math) to kids of all ages.

  • a pair of scissors

  1. What a cool project for kids. Love the expression on your son’s face. He got quite elaborate with its pop-up. Such a great STEM project.

    • Hi Patricia,
      This was right up his alley (and mine). Not complicated but creative and we happened to have everything in the house. I loved how he went crazy and made up his own design after trying it a few times. I think a smaller version would make a lovely greeting card!
