My kids force me to do origami.
We had Monday off for President’s Day so I offered to take them to see a movie – IN THE THEATER. And they declined. It had more to do with the choice of shows than anything else, but I was still surprised. I was a little disappointed too because I knew it wouldn’t take long before boredom crept in.
While Big C. was checking his email/facebook, he secretly googled one of his favorite topics: “dollar bill origami”. Then there he was in my face insisting that we needed to make an elephant together.
Funny though because after I got online, previewed all the steps and started folding, he was nowhere to be found. Hannie B. did show up with a dollar and we muddled our way through the valley and mountain folds together until twenty-one steps later we had a trunky little fellow who stood by himself and inquired about peanuts.
This is my second dollar bill transformation. My first was a heart. Up next is either a butterfly or an owl. How about you? Have you tried your hand at origami? What do you do with bored kids?
