Grab some origami paper* and join us for a fun, all-ages workshop with renowned origami artist and author Joel Stern! Fold-along with Joel as he shows us how to create 5 animals from his most recent kit, My First Origami Animals Kit: Speedy the Turtle, Downy the Duck, Grasshopper Gus, Patches the Panda, and Clara Cluckworthy.
*if you don't have any origami paper at home, cut some sheets to 6" squares to use for the event.
My First Origami Animals Kit is the perfect way to introduce children to the joys—and benefits—of origami. With 17 lifelike animal projects, each with easy instructions and colorful folding papers, this origami kit will provide hours of fun away from screens. Through origami, kids will learn geometry, dexterity and creative skills without even realizing it! Once the models are folded, the fun continues with all sorts of stickers—eyes, noses, paws and more—to make the models look as silly or serious as they want. Kids will be so proud to show off their very first origami animals!
