"Origami Games" is a unique twist on the traditional origami book. At its heart a book of games, it offers suggestions on how to use origami to play both competitive and cooperative games, building both individual skills and teamwork. The book also encourages readers to come up with and document their own games using a template provided in the back of the book.
By using models made from regular letter size (8+ x 11-inch) paper, "Origami Games" overcomes a common barrier--the difficulty in finding perfectly square paper--to the art of folding paper. The models in this book are simple, quick to make, easy to learn and will be particularly appealing to children in a school setting. There's even a section for parents and teachers that discusses the educational and developmental benefits of origami, along with suggested classroom activities.
