Origami Third Lesson

It's really rewarding when you are teaching and you can tell that your students have learned something from you. My kids are really getting the hang of some of the folds. They don't even need to be reminded of how to make their preliminary folds anymore, and simply proceed to making them on their own.

This lesson, I wanted to try out some slightly more complex models (as in, with more steps; I am still going for the pretty simple) and I chose some fun ones with a twist. The last two, however, were the kids' own choices. They provided some of the paper and the book we used. I was pleased to see that they prepared the material in anticipation for the lesson. That's how I know I must be doing something right.

We started with these balloon bunnies. The kids loved the part where we had to blow them up.
