Here’s what you’ll need:OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  • glue
  • glue stick
  • markers
  • construction paper
  • scissors
  • googly eyes

 

  1. First, fold the paper in half and make a small cut about 2/3 of the way up on the crease-sideStep 1
  2. At the cut, fold each flap up to make a triangle. Fold both ways, then unfold the paper. Step 2
  3. Here’s the tricky part; fold the diamond so that it creases inside the card when you close the card. It may take a second to wiggle out, but you’ll get it!Step 3
  4. Time to draw your StoryBot! I did a simple outline, including a round head, square body, legs, arms, and a rectangle on his belly. He’s looking pretty cool so far!Step 4
  5. We’re missing something…oh yeah, his googly eyes! Use a dab of glue to attach them. Once you glue them down, wait a few minutes to let it dry.Step 5
  6. Once your eyes are dry, glue your card to another piece of constructions paper. Be sure to write a cool message inside and outside.Step 6

Ta-da! A talking StoryBot, customized to be awesome! Try different size paper to make different size StoryBots. And don’t forget to send a pic of your creation on Twitter or Instagram!
