You can cut out figures of people or animals from magazines and cover with clear contact paper. Use clear postage tape to adhere to a craft stick, Insert the stick through the bottom of your box. When you push up on the stick the lid should pop up. Or you can put the same stick in a paper cup and have the figure pop in and out of the cup.
