Origami

13 07 2009

Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. By folding pieces of paper, you are able to create a beautiful paper sculpture.

Watch Samm and her helper, Jackson, create a polyhedron origami. Follow their instructions and you can make your own origami creation at home!

You will need:

· An old magazine

· Scissors

· Tape (to secure your sculpture)

Visit the MakerKids exhibit at the Austin Children’s Museum to learn more about origami.
