A few evenening ago I was reading a Curious George story to a little family member, and when we came upon the part where he folds up the newspapers into boats, well we just had to make some paper boats of our own. As it turns out this simple origami paper boat activity kept this very active three and a half year old glued to the chair, and he kept asking me to make more and more. He helped a bit by running his little finger along the edges to crease the paper, but was otherwise just plain thrilled to observe the process. Fortunately I was able to sneek in a few photos before he took all his boats home with him to Jerusalem after the holiday was over.
So dear readers, it is always great to have a little paper folding craft to pull out of your hat, and these little boats also make great table decorations for a birthday party, or placed on each plate they could certainly be place markers.......small ones could be great cupcake or cake toppers and the list goes on!
