This past week, we’ve had to say goodbye to many of our friends down in the south. As a military family, we expect to move every couple of years – and we very rarely get a say in where we go. My kids see moving as a grand adventure and impress me every time with their maturity and positivity as we pack up our home and head off to the next location.
This time, we are in the unique situation of moving at the exact same time as all of our friends. We have friends heading to Germany, Alaska, Texas and even Japan!
We’ve been using Oak Meadow’s Crafts for the Early Grades with the littles, and the book includes some easy Origami – I thought this would be the perfect playdate activity to use with our friends heading to Japan. We’ve been chatting with them all about what to expect when they arrive in Okinawa, practicing the language and sampling Japanese food – so of course trying Origami was the perfect project!
We grabbed some fun paper from the craft store and settled in with the book for an afternoon of folding. The instructions included how to fold a cat and a dog, and they are a perfect starting place for a child who hasn’t tried Origami before!
