About the Book
Keep your children’s hands busy during church services with Bible Origami. Instead of folding the service programs into paper airplanes, they can fold Noah’s ark, an oil lamp, or Joseph’s coat! As you develop the unique skill of creating these simple-to-intermediate origami designs, you will find opportunities to use them with all ages for lessons, activities, crafting, and everyday fun!

Instructions and My Attempts...
I have to admit as fun as I thought an origami book would be, I was not sure if I would do well with following the instructions to be able to create the designs. I am more of a visual person and prefer hands on and watching someone before attempting a task on my own. But I was pleased to discover that although it took staring at the pictures and reading the instructions a few times, I was able to successfully (or at least mostly successfully) complete the Serpent and Noah’s Arc. These were both in the level one folding category.
The book is well organized with black and white images and written instructions on how to fold the different pieces. I like how the origami could be used for a Family Home Evening lesson, for a primary lesson, etc. It is a fun book that parents and teachers will enjoy using with children.
