For 3-D Glasses:

  2. Cut a piece of the blue and red transparent plastic (can be a binder cover) to fit behind the eye openings, and adhere (Main Photo).
  3. Have students draw a picture with a blue pencil and then with a red pencil, with the lines slightly apart.
  4. When the students put on their 3-D Glasses, the picture will jump off the page.

For Pumpkin Glasses:

  1. Die-cut the Glasses from cardstock or construction paper. Fold the perforations on the Glasses, and adhere the ear pieces to each side.
  2. Die-cut two of any pumpkin die from orange construction paper. Have students cut a mouth and eyes from the center of each pumpkin to create the eye openings.

  3. Punch a hole with a hole punch in the center of two pieces of blue transparent paper large enough to cover the eye openings. Adhere the blue transparent paper behind the eye openings.
  4. Die-cut part of any fish die for a fin, and attach to the Glasses, or the students can design their own fins (Main Photo).
