In today’s post: These 20 cool origami tutorials will have you folding amazing origami designs in no time!
Origami is kind of like magic. You turn flat, boring paper into a three dimensional object using nothing but simple folds – it’s really pretty amazing. Kids love origami, and it’s a great way to keep them from going crazy on rainy days when they’re stuck inside. Origami can be a calming activity for adults, too. I like it for the same reason I like mowing the lawn: it’s something I can do that no one will undo within 15 minutes (heaven help me, I’ve swept my kitchen floor like 80 times already today!). Today I’ve gathered 20 cool origami tutorials for you. Most of them are fairly simple, with just a few offering a bit of a challenge, so most of them will be accessible for kids as well as adults. Enjoy!
