{Christmas Gift Idea} Origami: Books, Papers & More


If you are looking for a FAB (and quite) gift to give to a child between the ages of 8 & 16 I highly recommend The Joy of Origami By Margaret Van Sicklen.  Amazon is currently selling this book for only $6.78 and it is a total bargain!

The 57 models range in difficulty from a simple Elephant in Pajamas to a more challenging Tyrannosaurus Rex. There are models for special occasions (Stars and Stripes Pinwheel), action models (the Foxy Puppet), models for kids (One-Trick Pony) and models for friends (the Kissing Cranes). This book comes with 100 sheets of paper and will keep your kids mesmerized for hours on end.  My daughter loves this book, and yours should too. 🙂
