If you are looking for a fun, educational activity for your children, then you might consider origami. I found this fun book called Easy Origami by John Montroll on Amazon, and my boys have really been having fun with it.
Even my almost 6-year-old can do some of the simple projects with help. My 10-year-old’s can do some of the simple projects themselves, and some of the harder projects with help. My boys really got a kick out of making a cup out of paper that could actually hold water!
Here are some of the things you can make from this book:
- Candy Box
- Pin Wheel
- Water Bomb
There are more than 30 easy projects in all. I looked at several different books, and this one seemed to have the simplest instructions and best variety of projects for beginners. And the best thing about it is the price…it is less than $3.
I have even had fun doing some of these projects myself. It’s nice to have books like this laying around when your kids are bored and are looking for something to do. We will definitely be getting a lot of use out of it.
