There are more things to make from Sunday meeting programs than airplanes and fortune tellers; now your kids can fold CTR shields, pioneer handcarts, or the Salt Lake Temple!
Mormon Origami provides 25 simple to intermediate origami designs from the Book of Mormon and Church history. These designs can be used by teachers and parents as lesson handouts or activities to help children be reverent. This unique skill will entertain and help illustrate principles as you include these gospel-oriented designs in your lessons, activities, and everyday fun!
Breview: My son has been a big fan of origami, paper art, since reading the Darth Paper series, so when we saw this book I immediately handed it over to him and he loved it. In his own words “it’s awesome!” He easily followed the easy step by step instructions to fold a temple. Mormon Origami is great fun. My only wish was that it had some color illustrations or link to a step by step video online, to go with it. But overall, he truly enjoyed using this instructional book!
