It’s that time again….time to write our Compassion kids!
The theme this month: Origami. Specifically puppy origami.
In case you’ve never heard of it, origami is Japanese paper-folding. There’s a million, trillion things you can make. We’re just partial to pups.
The Eldest went on an origami kick a few months back, so I asked her to make something for our Compassion kiddos and make an instructional page to go along with it.
So, this is what she whipped up (with a little help from mom). I tried to make the instructions easy and used simple words so the translators won’t have a hard time.
She made each kid an origami dog and she even bundled up some of the origami paper (that she purchased with her own money) to send with our letters. We are going to suggest that they make a dog to share with their friends and siblings.
Origami is not that difficult and all you need is square paper to get started! Here are some sites with easy origami instructions:

Tell me about some of the fun things you like to mail to your Compassion kids…or anyone, for that matter. (Who doesn’t like to get mail?)
