Our origami champion


In December 2010 I bought an origami calendar after a succesful art workshop and recommendation from  a friend. It was supposed to be for me, but in the beginning of February, I still had 365 days to go.
And then Job found it (I left it where anyone could see it and I thought that one of the boys might like it). And immediately he completed one month! And he's good at it!

Aren't the boys interested in it now that they see Job's creations laying around? I remember being in awe of the creations my sister made when we were younger. It really is art!

Lol, one of my favourite things about taking on hand your kids education. You're working on your own education (and that off your partner obviously) too!
I learnt how to make the most simple origami stars last week, I wonder if it's on your calendar :)

Goed man, van je ouwe knutselaar! Wat een leuk concept trouwens, een kalender - weer eens wat anders dan gewoon een boekje.

Erwin vindt dat ook leuk!

Origami might be a little too difficult for the little finders of the small boys ;-). The kids in my class (406y) wouldn't be able to, though it would be very good for the "motoriek")(can't find the right word so quickly...) At least you found a boy who loves it!!!

Haha, dat had ik niet geraden: dat Job deze kampioen is! Leuk. Veel plezier verder ermee!

Groetjes,

Hi Ciska, yes, the boys (Boaz and Levi) are interested, but not in following directions, so they'll do their own 'origami' :)

Hi Alison, yes, there are some stars on the calendar, even a ninja star ;)

Hi Eveline, well....Job is far more creative than I am. He did product design, so it does suit him :)
