Origami Paper Stars
This afternoon the children in Mr Hunt’s class had a go at making origami stars to decorate their classroom. Despite this being a very difficult task, the children persevered and many good stars were created. Some children wanted to to have another go at this at home so the website address is: http://www.homemade-gifts-made-easy.com/5-pointed-origami-star.html
Making complicated origami such as this is excellent for developing fine motor skills and to help children understand the importance of preparation, the early folds are important to the finished product.
Have a go and enjoy,
