Bible Origami Book review

bible-origami-december-10-31-2016-blog-tourAbout 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!

 From Reidhead Randomness:
My daughters had fun with this book over our Christmas break.  Some of the items were a little tricky, and they had to try them a few times, but some were fairly easy.  They are all super cute, with good directions.  This would be a fun activity for a Sunday School teacher to involve the class in the lessons. 

Here are a couple of their creations: A dove, a coin, and a manger with a baby.

This was a great book, and we really enjoyed trying some of the creations!  I can't wait to do more!
