Fairy Tale + Origami = Fun!

I recently babysat for a friends little girls and we had a ball reading fairy tales and making origami. Their favorite was Goldilocks and the Three Bears. So we made an origami bear, house and bowl. (we used magazine pages...you can click on the items to link to step by step instructions)

I was thrilled to realize that the bear head also doubles as a finger puppet. That was great for an extended conversation on bears and just general silliness.

Which fairy tale is your fave?

What a fun and clever use of old magazines. I'm guessing, too, that the fun they had with you (and the lovely attention you paid them) will be a great memory for years to come ... and perhaps they learned a little something about recycling. :-)

That's so cute! And really great way to keep kids enganged and entertained (and adults too!).
