Hobby 3: Origami

Today's activity is an old classic, Origami. The goal of this art is to create a representation of an object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without the use of gluing or cutting the paper, and using only one piece of paper.

Remember that one Simpsons episode where they went to Japan because they were at the airport waiting for free tickets? Was that what they were doing? Point is, we got the idea for today's activity from the scene where Homer is showing Lisa a part of Japanese culture and creates an origami crane from their last Yen.


"It's probably the simplest thing you can do; children can do it."

Materials:
-Square piece of paper

Pros:
-Learn Japanese culture

Cons:
-Very very difficult

Basically, Mike was trying to make an origami wolf but in the end, failed miserably. Check back in a day or two when he actually succeeds and redeems himself.
