I Heart Origami and I'm Giving One Away on May 28, 2017

Lately, around this grandma's house, there has been a definite interest in origami. So, I asked Sterling Children's Books if their book <3 Origami might be available for review - it was and happily it was also available for giveaway, so today I'm happy to share this book with you!

<3 Origami
By - Michael O'Mara Books
Photos & diagrams by - David Woodroffe
Publisher - Sterling Children's Books
Ages - 8+

Favorite Features -
  • Includes step-by-step illustrated directions for ten origami creations - the jumping frog was a hit with my grandsons!
  • Also includes 200 beautiful sheets of origami paper - my grandsons love the origami paper!
  • Everything about this book is quality!
Sterling Children's Books says; "Kids love getting creative . . . and they really HEART origami!  A bird, a bunny, a box, a flower, and even an adorable pig: this book has all kinds of fun origami projects children can make! It comes complete with 200 pieces of colorful, patterned paper to fold and easy-to-follow instructions. Create a fish, a turtle, a jumping frog, a lovely rose, and more."

While some of the projects takes a bit of time to figure out, if you are patient, you will and the end results are fun origami projects! My grandsons - all three of them - are enjoying this book/kit . . . and, while it clearly is a book, it is more than just a book. <3 Origami would be a fun resource to pull out on a rainy summer day, or as a special treat for Children's Day (the second Sunday in June) as no matter the age your grandchildren are going to love taking a colorful sheet of paper and turning it into a frog, or bird, or pig, or ???

Not only did Sterling Children's Books send me one copy of <3 Origami for me to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only)! If you are over the age of 18 and would like to enter this drawing - which will be on May 282017, please comment below to tell me what you would like to make with origami - one of my favorite projects is a heart!
