Here’s an Unplugged Project for kids: Origami! I used to love doing origami as a child and I even still have my origami “how-to” books and paper. Yes, I really am a packrat.

I gathered the kids, my old books and my ancient origami paper, and we made some origami. Here are the results. You should be able to find two butterflies, two swans, two fancy boxes, and one ruby-throated hummingbird. The hummingbird was actually one of my childhood creations. We found it squashed between the pages of one of the books!

    Those are really cool. I used to love origami as a kid but I haven’t done it in years. Maybe next time I see one of those little kits I’ll pick it up.

    I AM going to do origami someday, I AM. And with an afterschool group, too, I hope. How come there is too much to do? Please be sure this is tagged origami so I don’t lose it!

    Origami is one of the most mathamatically essenced(sp) craft or art that a child can do. Now, think GREEN— use old magazine pages that you recut with a $25 paper cutter. You will be amazed at the way the images will transform when folded. P.S. this paper cutter will come in handy for SO many things in your life and is worth the investment!!!
