Does your child love history and crave meaningful hands-on activities? Do you need to motivate a creative or reluctant learner to discover the wonder of history?

Engage your child with articulated paper figures of the great men and women of history! Unlike paper dolls, these figures move! They are easy to assemble and are designed to supplement any history curriculum or stand alone with biographies.

Color, cut, and assemble using the award-winning Famous Figures series of activity books. Then, act out the stories of history or tell about the past with your historical creations. Makes learning history fun and memorable for your child!




Remove the card stock page from the book. Use crayons, colored pencils, markers, or paint to color the figures.



Cut out each of the figure pieces. Punch out the holes for the fasteners with a hole punch. The holes are colored red in the black-and-white figures to make hole identification easier.


Place the pieces marked Front under the pieces marked Back as you look at the back side of the figure. Match the letters together. Insert the mini brad from the front side of the figure into the holes of the pieces to be joined together. Repeat until all of the holes are joined with brads.
