Comments from our Site visitors
"I found this site just today as my children mentioned learning origami, not my favourite subject as in the past ten years, I've purchased three different 'origami for beginners' packages and have never maintained to result in a single (simple! ) job
"Today, I made my first origami 'basket' - whilst my 8 and 9 12 months olds made their first fleet of ships, blossoms, a zoo filled with
origami animals and more. The instructions are excellent - undoubtedly the best I've seen and the jobs are great. What a great way to spend a rainy day and the children 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 in particular to do with them!
The majority of the origami models at Activity Community are "flat" and therefore lend themselves to an origami scrapbook or engagement ring binder.
Your child can store their important work, show it off when
All of us used a cheap cardboard A4 ring binder to store our origami models, separated into three sections:
Very first, we hole punched various pieces of coloured credit card for the front of the binder, onto which we stuck our models. Some pages we filled up model by model, even as we finished them, dating them and adding one or two comments along the way. Other pages we "themed" - utilizing a darkish blue piece of credit card as a Bateaux Papier Pliage background for 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 away, ready to try.
3 rd, we used sticky-tape to attach a sizable envelope to the inside back side of the ring binder, in which we store our origami document safely.
