Ready for another awesome agamograph to make with your kids or your students? This time we’ve prepared a simple Back to School Agamograph Template for your kids to color and fold.
Coloring the agamographs surely is a creative way to practice the fine motor skills while having a lot of fun at the same time.
If you’ve already created some agamographs, you already know what is the beauty of it. But if this is your first time creating one, the excitement is even greater. The agamograph is a mixture of two different images, that alter one after the other. When you view the finished agamograph, you’ll see one complete image from one point of view, and the other one from the opposite angle.
This time we’ll be making a back to school themed agamograph (you will find the printable back to school agamograph template at the end of the tutorial).
From one viewing angle, you’ll get a pack of colorful crayons, and from the other one, there will be an enormous apple.
How to Make an Agamograph with our Back to School Agamograph Template
What you need:
- our printable back to school agamograph template
- coloring medium (pencils, markers, crayons…) (we love Tombow Dual Brush Markers)
- scoring tool (we usually use something at hand, in this case a wooden stick with a sharpened tip)
- paper (heavier paper is best, but regular print paper will work out fine)

Print our back to school agamograph template. We recommend using heavier paper (we used 120 gsm) but if you choose the regular one, you will get almost the same result.
You can get our printable template at the end of this tutorial.
Then, color in the template.
We picked nice and bright colors for both the apple and the crayons as this makes the pictures really pop out.
Cut out the colored agamograph. (You can also fold along the lines before you cut it out, whatever is easier for you).
We will need to score the lines.
You can place a ruler along the lines and score them with a scoring tool or a “DIY” tool or alternative (we used a wooden stick with a sharpened tip, another ruler can be used too).
Use the accordion fold technique to fold along the scored lines.
Continue with folding until you fold along all the lines.
Now that you’ve folded the whole agamograph, unfold it just a little bit, so you can see each image from a different point of view.
All you need to do now is to find a nice spot to display and enjoy your creation.
