I recently went to a PTA meeting where the school librarian informed us that the most popular books in the library were on origami. I was intrigued, so I got a few out of our public library. My kids had a blast folding paper into different shapes. So when I saw the blog tour for Mormon Origami, I jumped at the chance to be on the tour. The projects in this book were too advanced for my kids to make it beyond the first few steps, but I had a lot of fun folding the paper myself! This book is definitely for older kids with better coordination and reading comprehension than a kindergartener. :) The instructions are pretty easy to follow, so an older kid could figure it out with little to no help. While some of the projects are unique to Mormon culture, many are not (ie. a tree, a sword, a tower). Even if you aren't LDS, this book presents a lot of new and unique folding projects, so I wouldn't let that stop you from enjoying it. Origami is a lot of fun, and this book provides some exciting new projects for kids that have moved past the easy stuff. Highly recommended for LDS kids and fans of origami!

I jumped at the opportunity to review Mormon Origami when I saw the cool designs on the cover, and because I thought my kids would really enjoy it. When it first arrived, I let my kids have at it themselves. They had fun with it, although many of the designs were above their skill level. I thought all Level 1 items would be easy, but when I sat down with my kids I'll admit that I got lost a few times. We used 3x3 origami paper. That is very small for most of the designs in this book. Stick to regular sized paper (cut into a square if the shape requires that you start with a square), and you'll have a much easier time and a more fun sized result. I like how there are some quiz questions/trivia notes at the top of each design. It makes the activity more meaningful. 3.5 stars.

Origami (or-i-GA-me) is the art of folding paper. Used anciently for religious ceremonies in the Japanese culture. Today is it a fun hobby and craft...and can still be used for special occasions or for when you are bored or need an activity or lesson prop :) This book is REALLY FUN! Clever designs come from stories in the Book of Mormon, LDS Church History, and Latter-Day Temples Grab this book and try your hand at Mormon Origami :)
