Maybe you didn't like the origami geishas as much as I did, but I stay a little longer in Japan, if you don't mind. Let's make little origami boxes. I've made a whole bunch of them as a project for the school of our children. Once in a while I help crafting at school, and although I'm very content with this school, I don't think very highly of their arts and crafts educationprogram! I don't know how things work in other schools, but once I open my big mouth, I usely end up with a lot of work...
So little boxes it is. (After reading this, check You Tube for the song Little Boxes, and you won't be able to stop humming it, at least that's my experience...) Masu is the name of this little origami box, which is really easy to fold if you follow this diagram. There's no need to buy special paper, anything will do, even magazine paper, cut in squares. It's nice to make something with the children to put in the box. I've made these little frogs. They can jump for real! The diagram was in the box where the daisy paper came from (Djeco), but I found it here too. Six year olds can do this.
And how about a bear in a box? You should be a little over six to manage this ;-).
