More Origami for Children 35 Fun Paper Projects to Fold in an Instant by Mari Ono

With 35 creative paper projects for kids to make, More Origami for Children is guaranteed to inject a whole heap of fun into playtime. Stuck for something fun to do on a rainy day or worried about how to keep entertained on a long car journey? Don't panic, because you have in your hands one of the best boredom-busting books on the planet! Packed with 35 of the finest paper projects this side of Tokyo, More Origami for Children shows how to take a simple piece of paper and turn it into something so much more exciting, like a monkey hand puppet, a robot, pretty flowers, a gift box for all sorts of treats and treasures, and even a sumo wrestler. The projects range from very easy to more challenging-the tulip or the rabbit are great for teaching little hands the basics, while aspiring origami addicts will love the koala, windmill, snowflake, and even a dinosaur! You really will be amazed at what you can create with just a few simple folds. The best thing about the book is that it comes with 60 pieces of paper, meaning you can start folding straight away. And you really can make models anywhere: at home, in the park, on holiday, with your friends at school, or on a train... how cool does that sound?!
