Origami is a fun craft for kids to do. I love how you can take a small, flat piece of paper and turn it into a wonderful 3D object. Trying to teach Chloe has been slow going because for the most part, instructions I've found online or inside a package of a origami paper set, haven't been too clear. Now with the My First Origami Kit ($13.46 on Amazon) by Joel Stern (published by Tuttle Publishing), Chloe and I have been having fun making cute animals. The kit comes with everything you need which I love because you can easily take the box to go. It comes with book filled with step by step, clear instructions for 22 origami projects. The kit also comes with 60 two-sided origami sheets and 150 decorative stickers from eyes, paws and more. The instructions are very clear and perfect for my 6 year old to grasp.
The origami papers are very different and fun. They come in a wide array of patterns and colors – definitely way more exciting than just a rainbow of colors you typically get in a pack of origami papers.
Also, if you're like me and always going to kids' birthday parties, this kit makes a great birthday gift!
