Review and Giveaway: World's Best Origami (Ends 1/5)



I love to review books, especially when it is an activity oriented book! So I was excited when I was recently sent a copy of World's Best Origami to review. Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. I have always been fascinated, yet sometimes frustrated by origami, so I was initially curious about the user-friendliness of this guide. As soon as I picked it up, I was impressed with the amount of diagrams and projects in the book! It is the most thorough origami guide I've seen. On top of that there are plenty of projects for each skill level, ranging from beginner to advanced. So I was able to find a handful of projects that I can create without frustration.

Additionally, I really like that there are educational activities in the book as well. My sister is a high school math teacher, so I passed my copy of World's Best Origami along to her so she can try a few of the projects out with her students. From an eco-friendly perspective, origami is also a great activity for kids and teens because it can challenge you to find paper around the house to reuse for something new!

Buy it: You can purchase World's Best Origami for $19.95 (or less!) on Amazon.

  11. This book would definitely be for me; origami is something I've enjoyed since I was in my teens. I would also use the book with my 7-year-old, who doesn't have the fine motor skills just yet for the preciseness required, but enjoys doing it as close to perfect as she can get. I love doing it with her! I'm amazed at how well she can do, even with the confusing reverse folds and such...
