Origami After School Class Project: Skeletons in our Closets!

This week I put together our Skeletons in our Closets project by adding drawings of bones onto our folded friends! The doors to the closets were movable by pulling upwards on them from the top and then our skeleton friends were exposed beneath! Luckily, kids are too young to have "skeletons in their closets" but we had fun pretending we had them! Pictured below from left to right are our very own skeleton animals: cat, hamster, and rabbit!

The magic of Origami...

I just saw the movie "KUBO" with my 11 year old son and was blown away by it. I always felt that Origami was a magical experience and this movie confirms it.

If you haven't seen it yet, get out there and check it out! It is filled with both beauty and sadness but these two things many times go hand in hand. It was such a rush watching all of the Origami elements "unfold" before my eyes and I remember leaning over to my son and saying, "I cannot believe I am seeing this on the big screen". It was such a moving and beautifully written story that it is sure to inspire others in many unique ways.

I cannot wait to share my thoughts about this movie with my new Origami after school students which are about to begin in a few weeks time!
