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.
It’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.
And it makes wonderful greeting cards for any age!
To make this easy pop up card, you just need:
- paper or card stock (we used leftover poster board from his cloud poster science project)
- a pair of scissors
That’s it! How easy is that?
Here’s the video from The Kid Should See This that inspired our project.
And here’s a pop up card master at work!
BEST #OWNVOICES CHILDREN’S BOOKS: My Favorite Diversity Books for Kids Ages 1-12 is a book that I created to highlight books written by authors who share the same marginalized identity as the characters in their books.
