Origami Boxes

Each week at the hospital the kids in the cancer ward do a crafty project. It must be a challenge for the instructors because the project needs to be interesting for children ranging in age from 3-18. When my 5 year old made this box she worked next to a 14 year old girl and 10 year old boy. All the kids were very focused on their work.

Each child began with a sheet of square paper 24 inches x 24 inches, which they painted however they wished. Then they followed these Origami Box Instructions to fold their paper into a box. To make the bottom of the box they used a sheet of plain colored paper about 1 inch smaller than the top.
