Paper folding—origami—is a creative and easy-to-learn craft that's great fun for all ages and abilities. This book demonstrates 26 fun and imaginative projects, each with straightforward diagrams and tips that will guide readers from start to finish. 


Children can learn to make all sorts of figures, from foxes to flying spaceships, and from birds to floating boats. They can race jumping frogs, send gifts in a treasure box, and amaze their friends with the magic purse trick—all with paper and imagination. 


Activities are graded by the level of difficulty—from “starting out” to “experienced”—enabling children to develop their skills gradually and creatively as they learn to make increasingly complex figures. 


Paper Folding with Children is ideal for teachers or parents with children from 5 years old and up.
