With the last 10 days of Ramadan here you may be after something constructive for your kids to work on. So, why not try making your own greetings cards they are easy, fun and more meaningful than buying it. However I do have to warn you that once your kids learn how to make these cards it’s hard for them to stop making it. Today I’m sharing how to make a really simple pop-up card with kids.
You will need:
- A printed small image of your liking (we used a masjid)
- Colored Card Stock
- White paper
- Glue Sticks
Both the White paper and the card stock should be creased well half lengthwise. Take the white sheet and cut two parallel slits on the folded side of the paper, (now you can play around with the length of the cuts) but its about one inch apart and about one inch long.
Next, fold the cut, crease it well and open your card then pop the paper toward the inside of the card.
Now you can glue the card stock to the paper but be sure to not to glue the “pop-up” section down. For the next part you can either keep the two sheets of paper the same size or make the colored card stock slightly bigger than the white paper.
You can give your child the printed masjid (balloons, cupcakes, candy), stencils and crayons to decorate the cards.
