Weekly Origami Challenge: Origami for Empathy

20200528_173107It is Empathy Day on Tuesday 9th June.  This is a special day run by the non-profit organisation called EmpathyLab who promote reading for empathy.  Their aim is “to build children’s empathy, literacy and social activism through a systematic use of high-quality literature. Our strategy builds on new scientific evidence showing the power of reading to build real-life empathy skills. We believe that empathy is a beacon of hope in a divided world.”

For Origami for Empathy we would like you to make origami bookmarks or make a kindness fortune teller and add some messages of kindness for who you play it with.  The origami bookmarks can also be sent in the post to a friend you are missing.

This week is all about Enid Blyton for half term.  If you’ve read any of her books you will know that the characters love to drink ginger beer and eat cake and ice-cream, and who loves a picnic the most? Timmy the dog from the Famous Five series.  Can you make these for your very own origami Enid Blyton picnic?

Weekly Origami Challenge: Modular Cube

It is a hard one this week, only one model to make but can you do it?  Modular origami looks incredible.  The repetition of folds can be very mindful and the assembly is fiddly but logical.

Some tips. Make sure to turn the paper over when the instructions say – it will not work otherwise! Get a good crease in your folds – this helps when assembling the model.
