  • Homemade Pop-Up Cards

    Directions for making this card and many others are available on Robert Sabuda’s website.

    You might recognize Sabuda as the author of many elaborate and popular pop-up books like Encyclopedia Prehistorica Dinosaurs and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Not surprisingly, Alex loves these books. Equally unsurprisingly, he’s destroyed them (we had at least some of the books before he was born – they weren’t intended for him when we got them). At least they’ve been good teaching tools – we’ve taught him new words, and used the books (with some success) to convey concepts like gentle and looking through a hole (when Alice falls through the rabbit hole in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland).
