Origami make and taking with Kat Thomas, the Paper Florist came to teach the kids how to make origami flowers, peace cranes and butterflies. Joseph decided to make a gun to combat all the peace from the peace cranes! Anyway it was a fabulous afternoon of making. The kids really got into it. And they were excited to know that they could make these wonderful origami objects out of just about anything! Thanks to Kat for a great lesson!
Chinese New Year brought a flurry of printing. The kids learnt how to print using embossed wallpaper, different coloured paints and a printing press. There finished pieces were awesome!
