   WORLD ORIGAMI DAYS

OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 11

The Japanese art of paper folding known as ORIGAMI can be as easy as making a paper airplane or as difficult as you choose. Experts advise slightly moistening paper to make folding easier and can be used on either stiff or thick paper. When they dry, they will retain their shape longer.

Tune in to YouTube for the Origamido channel for ideas and inspiration! 

 

PLEASE SEND ME YOUR CHILDREN’S OR GRANDCHILDREN’S ARTWORK TO BE FEATURED HERE. Be sure to include first name, age, town, and any additional background info pertinent to the photo. Thanks for sending!
