Anticipating that my girls and I would enjoy trying some simple origami, I checked out a video from the library to teach us some origami folds. The pace was a bit much for my five-year-old, but my seven-year-old and a visiting friend were riveted. So was I.
I thought that various origami fish we made this month would work well for two purposes:
- To fill a pinata at my daughter's party.
- To be our treats at an upcoming Trunk or Treat event at our church.
This year at the Trunk or Treat event, I am planning to add a coin and paper clip to each fish, so that kids can fish for their treats. It will be a dry variation on the magnetic fishing game I made this summer. Also, the coins inside the fish are a reminder of the story in Matthew 17. A kid-friendly lesson is available here.
