Origami





We have had a great time experimenting with the craft of Origami. Amelia has mastered the crane and plans to make 1000 of them to hang in her room. Above are pictures of Amelia helping Maggie with a crane. I have learned some of the animals so I can help the children, so far I have made penguins, scorpions, butterflies, an owl, a squirell, and a grasshopper. Maggie made a snake, Euri made a panda. Daniel is learning the scorpion. Alex just plays with what we make! It has been a lot of fun! We will post more pictures later....but here is a close up of a crane and a penguin....

Good job! Try as I might I can't get my origami to look like anything but a crumpled piece of paper!

The pictures aren't loading for me for some reason. Chris loves his origami book. Its so great for those fine motor-skills.... and not to mention logic and following directions! :)

Love,
