be able to follow, various symbols and techniques. Our testers found them difficult to understand. So, to make our origami as clear as possible for children, we have photographed our models each step of the way. We hope that you and the kids can follow along easily!

Comments from our Guests
"I found this site just today as my children mentioned learning origami, not the best subject as in the past 10 years, I've purchased three different 'origami for beginners' products and have never maintained to develop a single (simple! ) project
"Today, We made my first origami 'basket' - whilst my 8 and 9 yr olds made their first fleet of ships, plants, a zoo Avion En Papier Pliage Planeur filled with origami animals and more. The particular instructions are excellent - undoubtedly the best I've seen and the jobs good. What a great way to spend a rainy day and the kids enjoyed it immensely... as did I for once"

Call and make an Origami Scrapbook or Ring Binder
One of the downsides of origami is having an irritating collection of paper designs cluttering up the house, and nothing specifically to do with them!
The majority of the origami models at Activity Town are "flat" and therefore lend themselves to an origami scrapbook or band binder.
Your kid can store their important work, show it off Origami Owl Charms when they wish to, add to the personal pages with drawings, writing, stickers, or other embellishments, and date their models so that they have a record of their achievements and progression.
We all used an inexpensive cardboard A4 ring binder to store our origami models, split into three sections:
First, we hole punched various pieces of coloured card for the front of the binder, onto which we stuck our models. Some pages we filled up model by model, as we finished them, dating them and adding one or two comments along the way. Other pages we "themed" - by using a darkish blue piece of cards as a background for Bateaux En Papier+facile our various fish models, and adding some stickers to make it look more interesting. We attached our models to the card with a glue stick.
Second, we added a number of plastic-type sleeves into which we slipped the origami instructions we had printed out, ready to try.
3rd, we used sticky-tape to attach a big envelope to the inside back of the ring binder, in which we store our origami document safely.
