J - jack-in-the-box added 7-16-98 Original Author Unknown

A very simple jack-in-the-box can be made from construction paper with a square (about 4 inches), a triangle (just a little smaller), two rectangles (about 3/4 by 3 inches), a circle (about 3 inch diameter) and a small paper spring (3/4 in. by 4 in. strip, accordion folded). The square is the box. The triangle is the body (attach to the top of the square) and the circle (the head) is attached to the top of the triangle with the paper spring . The spring makes the head bobble just a bit as if he had just popped out of the box. The rectangles are attached to the triangle body for arms. The children can draw the face and decorate the rest as they desire. The whole thing can be glued on another piece of paper if you desire. This might make assembly a
little easier for the children.
