Origami for the Littlies...............

Origami puppy.
...................... and for us big ones as well!
A friend of Sophie's showed her at school one day how to make an origami boat. She remembered it so well that she then showed us when she got home.

Piano and chair.

On a rather dull and showery afternoon the subject of Origami came up again and Sophie and I found this excellent website.

Handbag and Purse

Origami-Instructions is a website that has a range of origami items with clear step by step photographs for the youngsters to follow with some text to keep it moving along. The photos are enough on their own to get a good result. The examples above Sophie made all by herself and right proud she is too.

So if you are in need of a little something to keep your youngsters occupied for a bit as we move into the latter stages of the Summer Holidays, take a quick look at this. I did make one or two to start with to encourage Sophie and then off she went!!


Took them over to the in-laws, she was that pleased with them.

Any paper can be used really or wrapping paper would be good. You need squares and make them a reasonable size as it does make it easier for folding etc.

Your little girl's as crafty as you. =) I have a small collection of Japanese floral origami paper but I can't bear to fold it!
