King David Book

We've been working on a pop-up book about David. Here are pictures of each page for you to see:

This is the cover. It is made of a foam sheet. The kids glued the crown to the cover.

The first page is about David the shepherd. The kids glued cotton balls to outlines of sheep. They got to choose a pipe cleaner "David" to put in the pocket.

The second page is of a lion. His mouth opens and shuts. The kids glued googly eyes to the lion. This should help remind them how God took David when he killed a lion that was bothering his sheep. Instructions for the "talking mouth" lion came from Joan Irvine's book How To Make Pop-ups.

The 3rd page is a pop-up Goliath. He has a sword/spear that has a magnet attached. There is a magnet on the paper to help keep it in place. Instructions for making a pop-up like Goliath can be found in Joan Irvine's How To Make Pop-Up book.

The last page is of David the king. His crown is a paper spring that is glued at both ends. It folds up when the book is closed. The paper spring crown can also be found in Joan Irvine's How To Make Pop-Up book.
