Make a Pop-up Star or Moon Eid Card

It's that time for making Eid cards again!

As usual, I wanted something different from my previous cardmaking with prekinders. I had a surplus of star stickers that I bought when they were on sale. And what prekinder doesn't like to have a whole sheet of stickers to play with?

None of mine, that's for sure. So here they are happily peeling and sticking away.

How to Make a Pop-up Star Eid Card

1. Take a piece of A4 cardstock and fold in half. On the front of the card write 'Eid Mubarak' using a liquid paper pen.

2. Cut out a star from gold cardboard and stick it onto the card by making a tab (see photo 3).

3. Let children select the colour card they want. Give children a sheet of star stickers and have them stick randomly around the big pop-up star.

4. Children dictate a message and you write that down. Then have them write their name and draw a picture.

There you have a star that jiggles on a card!

Here's a moon card that a different prekindy class made.

Looking back at it, I decided that it would be even nicer if we'd used a black card for the background. But I ran out of black cardboard and these were the only colours left. So for the Friday toddler class, I had a few black cardboard left that I cut in half (so I could get more cards) to make an A5 folded card. These cards were half the size of the coloured ones above. But I think they're much nicer. Don't you think?

I quite like these ones the best. Which one do you like better?
