Fold & Fly Origami book from Quarto Knows!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


How fun it is to fold! Every single one of my kids has gone through wanting to learn how to create origami. My daughter does a great job with butterflies. My two oldest boys (one learned from the other) used money to make little shirts with collars, pants, or dollar rings. Now my youngest is learning how to fold with this Fold & Fly book from Quarto Knows that not only teaches you step-by-step how to make your folds, but also gives you patterned paper to do so!  Double fun-fun!




This book has a generous supply of patterned paper, so it is ideal for group settings, houses with multiple children, or for simply being able to make the ones you like over and over again (perhaps for gift giving...something I know kids love to put a unique spin on). Or you could use this generous supply to work on/through until you finally master the designs with ease. My son said it would be fun to have this be a group activity at his next birthday party. I agree. The book includes 144 sheets of paper, in 20 colorful patterns.


My youngest is attempting the dragonfly as we speak.


It will be fun once he masters it, because depending upon the pattern of paper he uses, this particular fold makes either the flying fish or the dragonfly!! Cool, right? He's hoping that it will also fly far, as the title of the book is Fold & Fly. Mastering this craft could make him the coolest paper 'airplane' flyer in elementary school. That's a big deal, you know. ;)


You can learn about this and other great books...not just origami (though they do have a LOT of wonderful origami selections), by visiting the Quarto Knows website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

  5. I work as a teacher in Spain. I assist in the art class sometimes and I was actually looking up origami tutorials for my students. It's so much fun to make stuff out of paper!

  6. Origama always blows me away. And I am awed at the skill and ingenuity of the designers. I think it is an ageless past-time (though I was bemused by the 'adults-only' versions. I prefer the birds and butterflies.

  13. Anything that sparks imagination and creativity in kids and gets them off their phones is okay in my book. I think of Alissa's husband and his money folding when I see this book.

  14. This is such a cool book for Origami. I wish I had seen it before I had to teach a class on it at the library. I will see if I can find it now though.
