A great way of making things pop out at you!

You will need:
  • old magazines with big photos of faces
  • thin card
  • felt pen
  • scissors
  • paper
  • sticky tape
Look through some old magazines to find a big photo of someone’s face, and cut it out carefully.

Stick it to a piece of thin card.
Take another piece of thick paper, and draw two silly eyes on it.
Cut them out, colour them, and you’ll have two silly eyes like this.
To make this even sillier, you must make it look like the eyes are popping out of the face.

To do this, you need to make some paper springs.

Cut two strips of paper, about 30cm long and 1cm wide.
Lay the end of one strip on top of the other so that they are at right angles, and tape (or glue) the strips together.
Fold the strips alternately over one another. This is the first fold.
And this is another fold from the other side.

Eventually you get into a rhythm of fold and lift, fold and lift, etc.

Keep folding one strip over the top of the other.
When you get near the end, put some glue on the end, fold the last one over and press it together.
And there you have a waggly paper spring.

Make another one in exactly the same way so that you have two.
Then put some glue on the back of one of your drawn eyes, and stick it onto the end of one of your springs.
Then glue the other end of the spring, and pop it onto an eye of the photo.

Hold it in place until the glue has dried.
If you do likewise for the other eye, you’ll have something that looks like this!

And there you have it - pop up eyes!

Try it yourself!
