We have another fun project for your kids (or you) to do during the hot summer months, this time we are sharing a fun summer agamograph template with you.
Making a agamograph is really, really fun and we hope this template will inspire your kids to start making their own.
So what is an agamograph? Well it’s two pictures in one and depending from which side you view it you will see one picture appear. There are millions of possibilites oh how to make one, once you know how it’s done your kids will be creating their own. This techniques is super fun for making DIY gifts – just think of how fun family photos would look if they would be presented like this.
With the summer temperatures being as high as they are (at least here) we are sharing a summer agamograph printable template (you can find the printable at the end of this tutorial). There are two summer-y designs on it, both sharing the same scene but from a different viewpoint.
Fist picture shows a sail boat on the sea and the sun in the background (aka a view from the above).
The second one shows an under the water scene with lots of fish and other sea creatures. You can also spot the same boat and sun in this scene (aka a view from down bellow).
Ready to make your agamograph? We sure are!

Print our summer agamograph template. We recommend using heavier paper (we used 120 gsm) but regular print paper will work out just as well.

Score along the lines. We used a long ruler that we placed along the lines and scored them with another ruler. Easy peasy.

Accordion fold along the scored lines.
