Light Up Greeting Cards with Paper Circuits
With copper tape, LEDs, and coin cell batteries, students can transform ordinary greeting cards into fun light up cards. The circuits are simple, but successfully activating an LED by pressing a spot on the card that closes the circuit is immediately rewarding and gives kids the chance to see the science in action in a fun and creative project. Bring a bit of added light to your greetings with creative electronics!
You and your students can make paper circuits at home or school using directions in the following Science Buddies projects and activities:
- Paper Circuits Science Projects (resource collection)
- Make a Paper Circuit
- Paper Circuits: Make Electrifying Art
- Creative Paper Circuits with Copper Tape
