We had some friends over for a sleepover this weekend and of course everybody stayed up way too late. Turns out origami is the perfect next-morning activity…all the children spent hours peacefully folding amazing creations while I mainlined some coffee.
It was so much fun that I was inspired to start a Pinboard of my childhood favorites: https://www.pinterest.com/MerryAntoinette/origami/
Our favorites are the classic paper ninja stars (shiruken) and an easy blowup Pikachu ball! Instructions for the origami pikachu are here.
