Pop-up cards were a hit for my 2nd grade. I wanted to give them a skill that they thought was really cool and would be able to use in the future. You are going to get a kick out of the instructional video (about 2:55 on the clip) when you hear the kids clap. They thought I was teaching them magic.
Below was an image that was sent to me from a parent. I had received several emails. Parents are telling me that there are pop-up cards being made at home in most households. These cards below are 'for sale'. That is art. Art is what kids can value, create, experiment with at home. Give pop-up cards a try... the kids loved them!
