Description: Remember the fun of creating something out of an ordinary sheet of paper? Students will begin to understand one of the greatest values of origami—the sense of wonder and accomplishment one gets from creating something from nothing! Origami can be so much fun; discover how to fold a simple piece of paper into a bird, a flower, a box or a dinosaur. We will begin with simple models and on our last session children can have a jumping frog contest and take home a box of origami birds and their other creations. Materials provided.
