We’re reading The Wizard of Oz as a family and my boys are loving all things emerald right now! This is my first time actually reading the original novel and the little differences between the book and the movie are so interesting (like everyone having to wear green-tinted glasses in the Emerald City or that her shoes are actually silver.) My husband drew these interchangeable blocks as a fun craft for our boys and thought you guys would like it too!
Making these are super easy, just print out the “Wizard of Oz Flip Cubes” Free Printable, color, cut, and assemble. Depending on the age and ability of your child, you may need to assist during some of these steps. I used double-sided tape on the cube tabs but you can also use glue or a glue stick.
The Wizard of Oz Flip Cubes are assembled and now it’s time to have tons of fun changing them up! We laughed especially loud at the Dorothy/Scarecrow/Lion combination. You could even change this tutorial up a bit and insert a dowel rod down through the tops and bottoms of each cube so that they can rotate on it. Or cut out the images and glue to the sides of a wood cube for something a little more sturdy. Hope you have as much fun with these as we did!
