Origami Fun




.


Our Five in a Row book this week was Grandfather's Journey by Allen Say. The book is about a man born in Japan who travels to the U.S. and back to Japan. We talked about some different things about the Japanese culture and for a fun project decided to try our hand at Origami. I found this website http://www.origami-fun.com/ and clicked on the origami for kids link. We tried out the hat and the drinking cup and all of the children had a great time folding the paper and the results of their efforts. Chelsea was very interested and got back on the website to print out instructions for the tulip and a crane. She spent most of the afternoon working on it and even gave one of her flowers to our dinner guests Saturday night as a gift. You never know what kids are going to be interested in until you give it a try.
