Do you have a child who enjoys origami? Not too long ago we made these fun and easy origami rabbits. If you haven’t tried it yet, this origami project is a fantastic starting point for beginners — my four-year old loved it!
When my friends at Tuttle Publishing, the premier publisher and seller of books rooted in Asian culture, language, and history, asked if we’d like to try out a few of their favorite products for young learners (and an origami kit was included), of course we said “yes!”.
We have thoroughly enjoyed everything they sent, and what rises to the top is this reasonably priced origami box kit, My First Origami Kit (affiliate). It comes with patterned paper, one of the best origami instruction books I’ve seen yet, and a selection of stickers for adding eyes, paws, and other details to the origami.
The stickers are what makes this kit really shine, and my kids loved this extra.
My four-year old dug in right away. While both of my kids (ages 4 and 6) needed extra help with some of the steps, they loved picking out the animals and objects to build (with my help) and especially enjoyed adding stickers to their creatures.
Over the course of a month, we have made just about everything in this kit! Penguins, bears, birds, boats, and more.
I also really like how the high quality origami paper corresponds with the projects. There’s brown fur-patterned paper to go with the bear, black and white paper to go with the penguin, and so on.
The kit comes with instructions for 20 projects and 60 pieces of paper, so you could essentially make three of each project, which makes this a good value for a family with more than one child.
