Origami Round Up

Origami is very popular around here, or at least books on how to do Origami. We made paper cranes in Anime Club once, and we’ll do some Origami again this week as part of the You are Here Self theme.

I’m not a paper folding pro, so I rely on good instructions to tell me what to do. A while back I wanted to learn how to fold a paper lily, and looked through many instructions and videos until I could figure out all the folds.

A good origami book combines shapes kids want to do, with instructions they can actually follow. Many times there is a fold or turn that isn’t included that means the difference between success and frustration.

Not-Quite-So-Easy Origami (Snap) This series goes from very easy through moderate and to difficult. I like that the book covers projects of a lot of different difficulties.
