These two things have never been
changed ever since.
Itﾕs lots of fun to do it during recess!
<Folding Origami with friends>
If you are an experienced origami-lover or a good craftsman,
you wonﾕt have any problem folding Origami patterns following directions, but for some children or teens, it might be difficult. Donﾕt be discouraged!! There are some other ways to enjoy Origami.
1 Origami Party
You pick one or two easy origami patterns (flowers or simple animals etc.), then provide sheets of paper. Ask your friends to make one or two of each Origami pattern. You can never be fussy or picky when you work on this, because it is a party! When you are done, paste them on a large sheet of paper on the wall. (or you can pin them on).
You can arrange them like a flower garden or an animal zoo. It is also a good project for primary and elementary classroom activities.
2 Decorate Your Room
For a Birthday Party or a special occasion, you can decorate your room with Origami.
* Diamonds *
Cut several sheets of Origami paper (different colours) into 4 small even squares. Paste them by corner to corner, making a long tape-like thing.
Pick some bright colours for the best result or pick one or two colours and make them into a gradation. Stick them on your ceiling.
Cut several sheets of Origami paper into 4 similar thin rectangles. (Thin ones work better.) You take one of them and glue both ends to make a circle. Next you pick another rectangle to put it through the first circle and glue it the same way to make a chain.
* Cut and Pierce Window Decoration *
If you pick silver or white paper you'll get snowflakes. Or you'll get some flower- patterns with bright colours. Fold an Origami paper into a triangle twice or three times. Cut some notches out of it, and unfold it carefully. You'll find it lacy and fancy!! Stick it on the surface of the window. It is also marvelous for the Christmas season.
3 Fun Fair for Fund-raising
You set the tables for the beginners or the young children to teach them how to fold Origami patterns. Origami tickets are sold for a quarter, so it will be a hit for parents with young children. You will need some members to be Origami specialists to help kids to work at the table. You might need to provide Origami papers at cost.
4 Paper Airplane Show
There are a lot of variations in folding Origami paper airplanes. You will be able to have it as a competition or show for the Father & Son Evening project. You need lager and heavier sheets of paper than normal Origami paper.
5 Origami Magic
It is fantastic and fun for the Birthday Party attraction. You pick some animals or insect Origami models that move. Then practice. With your magic wand.
6 Dinner Table Setting
There are many ways to fold napkins to attract your guests. Or you can add a Japanese touch for a Japanese Dinner even with one Origami for sure. You can get many kinds of Japanese paper by order. (Chiyogami. Washi. Double layered tissue-paper etc). Or you can fold fancy candy boxes or Bits and Bites-trays with Origami.
