Jack in the Box

Jack in the Box craft

Fun pops up all over the place when kids create their own version of a timeless toy. Kids learn the ups and down of movement as they think outside the box.

  • 1.

    With Crayola® Scissors cut construction paper to cover the sides of a recycled square tissue box. Glue paper on the box with Crayola School Glue. Dry.

  • 2.

    Decorate the box with Crayola® Markers and Crayola Crayons.

  • 3.

    Cut a long, narrow strip of thin cardboard or recycled file folder. This character strip should be quite a bit longer than the tissue box so you can slide it down and up to pop out.

  • 4.

    On the cardboard strip, draw a Jack-in-the-box or any other character with Crayola Colored Pencils.

  • 5.

    Ask an adult to cut a slit in the bottom of the tissue box. Slide your Jack up and down through the top and bottom openings.
