Writing a children’s popup book requires you to select a topic that kids will love. Understand what makes babies happy by observing them when it’s their playtime. Babies generally have a common interest in games, interesting books, food, animals, colors, etc. Study their interests before coming up with a book to avoid a boring topic that won’t be appealing to kids. Stories are categorized as either fiction or non-fiction, so coming with the book needs you to identify the category. Competition for popup books is tough since they’re many built, so you’re supposed to be unique and interesting.
Make the components of the popping book simple and easy to understand for kids. Avoid many complex elements that would make the book complicated for kids. In writings, use huge numbers or letters easily visible while the book pops up. The durability of the pages is determined by the number of cuts you’ve made to your pages. To make it simple and durable, fewer cuts are required in the making. Decorate the pages with crafting elements to make them attractive to the eye. Use art images that are colorful and kid-friendly because kids love beautiful-looking appearances on their sight.
Create a plan for the popping book for kids by structuring it in a notebook. Write a complete story by separating it into paragraphs, titles, subtitles, images, etc. Make the story have a flow by knowing the maximum number of pages that are needed. The pictures require you to know where to position them as well the total number of images that are needed. All work should be planned on a draft notepaper before actualizing it to the main popping book. This is important as it enables you to have an idea of what a popping book will look like by erasing unnecessary points.
Construct the book by folding pieces of notepaper into halves by using thicker notepaper. Create a cover of the book by folding a paper in half horizontally. A cover page should be thicker and harder than the inner pages. Make two small horizontal parallel cuts in the outer middle of the cover paper. These slits help to make a tab for your book for kids. Make a paper to be positioned vertically to make its height look longer than the width and using your fingers, push the tab forward. To create a tab needs you use scissors to cut the two parallel lines in the middle.
Use another draft paper to make illustrations of your drawings to ensure that the art fits properly in your popup book cover. Ensure all the information needed for the entire book is readily available. Use the book cover procedure to create all other flip paging required to come up with the final book. On every page, leave a blank space at the bottom of a page if a child is needed to write their story. Making it simply needs you to create lines using a ruler at the bottom for kids to write easily. If kids are not supposed to write anything, you can type and print together with images.
Decorate every page by sketching first on blank papers then attaching it to target page. Color your drawing using the color of your choice by making colors attractive and bright for babies. To make it pop, the arts should be cut and pasted on the tabs using sticking glue suitable for papers. There is glue designed purposely for paper use because there are other types that can be corrosive which can lead to burning your work. Glue paperwork together back to back continuously to all the paging in that pattern. The tabs should not be glued as they should be free to allow for popping up.
Therefore, popup books for kids are easy to make as the elements required are easily accessible. These books are important as they help keep kids occupied to learn new patterns. Kids can relate images to what they see in a real-world environment and daily activities. Creating babies’ books is also a good economic activity because you can sell them to earn money. Kids are born daily in the universe, so the market for popup learning materials is readily available. Selling can be done online by posting to social media or ecommerce websites or offline by selling them physically to ready customers.
