make your own pop up book

Last month I posted about my daughter’s suncatcher. Today, I’ve got another kid-approved creative gift idea: Create Your Own Pop-Up Books. The day after my daughter received this she was tearing into the box before I was even awake. She actually had a lot finished before she woke me up for help.

I was thinking we would actually plan a story before working on this, but her enthusiasm could not be contained. Each page is it’s own story decorated with markers, pop-ups and stickers. “The clams are happy. Mr. Owl is mad.”

There’s lots of potential here for kids of all ages. It literally kept her occupied all day long, with breaks only for meals. I’ve you have children in your life who like books and art, I’m guessing they’ll love it.

p.s. I’m writing about these books because I think they are cool and my daughter loved them. I have no affiliation with pop-up anything. I’m just spreading some creative love.

    Julie–When I went to the last homeschooling conference I found a vendor who has SUPER cheap art supplies, including make your own books (all sizes, even board books) and they are DIRT cheap! Here is the link. Can’t believe I forgot to tell you that through the months, as I thought of Bella. We bought a couple different sizes but I’m saving them for when Lukka is a self-directed writer (as opposed to now, just doing dictation).
