Project Description:

This is a project that provides children entertainment as they see the transformation of a sheet of paper to a three-dimensional object. It does not take much space, much money, or much time. It only requires a sheet of paper and the instructions on how to fold origami. The project also contributes to others and the planet. Through folding origami, children can learn a new way of playing with paper that fosters ingenuity, originality, imagination, patience, and concentrated power. They also learn concentration and patience and can make small gifts to please others. They learn how to fold an origami crane, a symbol of world peace.
