Synopsis

Folding for Fun: Origami for Ages 4 and Up For Ages 4 Up 16 Easy Origami Projects by Didier Boursin

16 easy origami projects ideal for children 4 and up. If a child can fold a piece of paper, he or she can learn the basics of origami. Plus, once finished, it's fun for that child to decorate and play with the object just created. Expert author Didier Boursin demonstrates all the folds in easy, individual steps using clear, colourful drawings and engaging photographs of kids making origami models like a boat, a fish and an airplane. Only seven types of folds are used in the entire book, and a visual glossary at the beginning carefully shows what each fold instruction means. Some of the projects have only three or four folds. Selected for their simplicity and certain appeal to young children, the 16 origami projects include: 3-D 'hello cuckoo!' card; Balls; Floating boat; Twirlers; Storybook; Magic paper; Racing sailboats; Moo-ing straw; Stairhopper; Big-eared rabbit. Any preschooler can do origami. Folding for Fun makes this ancient art accessible for them by turning each project into a playful and rewarding activity that also produces a toy.

Reviews
