Sometimes if a person is very sick, his or her friends will work together to fold a thousand cranes and string them on thread into long chains, which they take to the sick friend. Chains of a thousand paper cranes ease pain and sadness and bring hope to people who see them.
In Japan, at one time origami was taught in schools but today, children are generally taught origami at home. Holidays are celebrated with colorful origami decorations made by the family. On children‘s day (formerly boy‘s day), children make colorful carp: a fish that swims upstream, against the current. This symbolizes strength. During the summer, Tanabata, The Star Festival is celebrated. Live bamboo branches are decorated with origami stars and other paper decorations in a manner which brings to mind a decorated Christmas tree.
These are some very special CHRISTMAS COOTIE CATCHERS. You can either print out our free Christmas printables… or watch the video and make your own "plain" Origami fortune teller that you can decorate and write in yourself! Yes.. this is most DEFINITELY a childhood class and every child should learn to make one!
You can do these with any kind of paper although I really, really recommend you use origami paper and you can even get a patterned origami paper which is beyond adorable!
