The following is a post from contributing writer Lana.
My kids and I are in a hotel room. We’ve read all the books, and I’m trying to keep the television off.
What can I do for fun? I need a project – ASAP!
I love those easy projects (that are either free or cheap) that you can do with kids, and my list of 77 ways to fight boredom is about all used up.
So, we decided to Make Towel Origami.
I gave each of the kids a towel, hand towel or washcloth and let them experiment. My kids came up with snakes, guns, Leaning Tower of Pisa and many more. There is no right or wrong, no messes, and you can’t hurt a towel.
How to make a Towel Swan
Supplies: One child and one washcloth.
1. Lay out the wash cloth.
3. Fold an adjacent corner to the center.
4. Begin to twist the side of the towel starting with the top all the way to the bottom.
5. Now twist the other side.
6. Flip the towel over and bend the towel in half. You are almost done!
7. Bend the head down. Fluff the feathers.
Don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t work out right the first few times. Keep experimenting. Roll tighter. Have fun!
Towel origami is so cool to make and possibilities are endless. Look at my son’s elephant.
Blessings to you! You are loved!
