Children's Crafts - Jack in the Box

All projects are FREE, however, donations towards the upkeep of Walkabout Crafts are much appreciated. Please click below to make a donation.

Children's Crafts - Jack in the Box from www.walkaboutcrafts.comYou will need:
Strong paper in two colours
Small tin or box with hinged lid
Ruler
Pencil
Scissors
Blu-tac
Glue
Felt tips

1. Measure the inside of the tin base. If the tin is not square, measure along the shortest side. Then cut two very long strips of paper about ¼ inches (6 mm) narrower than the measurement.

2. Dab a little glue onto one end of the paper strip. Stick the end of the other strip on top so it is at right angles.

3. Fold bottom strip over top strip. Make fold exactly over the edge of the other strip. Press fold firmly between finger and thumb.

4. Now fold the second strip over the first. Continue folding like this until the paper string is as high as the box when you press it down with your finger. If the spring isn’t high enough, cut more strips and glue on carefully.

5. Make the arms in the same way, using strips of paper about half the width of the strips you used for the spring. Stick underneath one of the folds near the top of the body.

6. Using felt tips, draw a funny face and hair on a piece of paper. Cut out and stick to the top of the spring. Stick the bottom of the jack to inside of tin or box using blu-tac.
