Origami Art for Children
Origami is the art of paper-folding.
This is a simple project where kids or adults can have fun with color and design.
Using just two simple folding methods, these designs are quite easy, dazzling in color, and fun to do. Designs can be symmetrical or free-flowing. This is a great project to experiment with color combinations, patterns or simply creating an interesting picture. The project keeps elementary kids busy and hold their interest for a long time!
The end product looks great because they are so colorful and 3-dimentional!
Neon or brightly colored copy paper (cut in 3 inch squares or any size square you wish),
or use Post-it or Sticky Notes ( 3 inch squares)
Background paper (Construction paper or whatever you prefer)
Kid Created Art Designs
These designs used the rectangle fold. The designs differ by linking or connecting the pieces in various ways.
Use the triangle fold to create flowers and leaves!
Leaves are made from smaller squares folded in the triangle fold.
or even a caterpillar!
And a rainbow!
The possibilities are endless!
Use the small triangle folds for birds in a tree, leaves, or fish in an ocean.
Try it and have fun with color and design!
