Easy Origami Paper Crafts for Children
May 15th, 2012 by Craftylocks

I have been getting a quite a few comments about folk enjoying the easy origami crafts I have put on papercraftsforchildren. So I at last have updated this list to gather them all up for you!

Origami is one of the best paper crafts for children to play around with. You need minimal materials, just some square paper, and there are activities suitable for all abilities. The ones I list here are easy and I reckon look really good.
