Two Brilliant Paper Folding Books For Kids!
I purposely said ‘paper folding’ and didn’t use the word origami in the title as I know some people are ‘allergic,’ immediately tense up and say ‘I can’t do it.’ The things is, these two paper folding books are the best in the whole wide world, according to me. They were both given as birthday presents to two of our kids by a very lovely friend.and they keep coming back off the shelf time and time again. They come with their own coloured and patterned paper and are totally suitable for girls and boys alike!
These really would be perfect for Christmas presents: it’s something the kids can enjoy by themselves, or something you can really enjoy doing together
while sipping mulled wine.
Wild & Wonderful Origami
(Age 6 – adult)
I absolutely love this book – like the aeroplane book, it comes with a stack of full-coloured and patterned paper. It guides you through how to make 35 different animals, each labelled with their own skill level and easy to understand instructions!
we’re currently working their our way through with the aim of making a zoo, which they’ll we’ll then play with!
The other origami book I totally love is…
Klutz Book Of Paper Airplanes
(Age 6 – adult)
I think it’s part of the rules of the universe to know how to make a paper aeroplane isn’t it? At least make it a ‘Headhunter’ or a ‘Space Cruiser’…
It comes with a stack of 40 coloured & patterned ‘flight ready’ paper, ready to fold the planes and has the enticing caption, ‘The 10 best paper aeroplanes you’ve ever folded and flown!’ I actually think it’s true. All the planes look totally different and they fly amazingly well!
Names such as ‘The Hammer,’ ‘The Professional,’ Nakamura Lock’ and ‘Flying Ninja’ just make our now seven year old brighten with anticipation. He can fold them by himself now but as a six year old he needed help. It’s fun to do together and only slightly alarming having to duck them as they’re flight tested around the kitchen…
Please do consider buying both of these books at once.
