Workin’ It Wednesday~Fold it FUN!!!

Hi there! How are ya? I’m linking up with Corinna at Surfin’ Through Second to share what we’ve been workin’ with.


If you stopped by the blog recently, I told ya I’d share a foldable we began using recently that’s quickly become one of our favorites. Like dioramas? Have a hard time collecting boxes? Don’t want to stress about finding boxes? Wellll, this is a perfect foldable for you!

Start with a plain piece of construction paper. I ALWAYS keep a stash handy. You never know what your smart cookies may discover while learning that you may want to capture in a fun way.


Have students create an illustration to demonstrate their learning that covers the entire space of the paper. This sheet is 12x18. ;-)

Fold the sides in to meet at the center. Fold the corners to the outer edges as pictured above.

Fold the top to the bottom to create a “hamburger” fold. Slit the center folds to the outer edge.


Set atop a flat surface. Fit the top flap over the bottom side flaps and staple in place.


….and voila! Diorama! Seems like a lot of steps, but once you’ve done two or three, you’ll whip them out in a matter of minutes and the kids LOVE seeing their work transform from a flat drawing to standing at attention and awaiting details.


Add details (one of our favorite phrases)….and share to “show what you know”!

Didn’t they turn out cute? Hope you’re able to draw, flip, and fold to help wind down these last few days too! Enjoy!



  1. How fun! I will have to make a few this summer for practice. I haven't done any dioramas in a long time because of the box collecting. Mahalo for linking up and sharing!
