If you'd like to try your hand at origami, this site includes a narrated, step-by-step video showing how to make seven different origami creations. The models range in difficulty from beginner to advanced and include a frog, a duck, a dog, a water lily, a phoenix, a butterfly and a "good luck" bat.
This is a great way to learn. My daughter was able to stop, start, and rewind the video so she could move through the instructions at her own pace. Kick off interest in this wonderful art with a visit to the exhibit that hosts this site - the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA!
