Inspired kathys reviews

A couple of my kids are into arts and crafts so I thought they would enjoy this book.

This is a cute book with some fun origami designs in it.

There are fewer designs than I thought there would be (only about 2 dozen).  Some of them are very generic such as the Sword of Laban & Lehi’s Tent.  Others are quite specifically Mormon such as some of the temples.  Most are not for beginners.  The designs are leveled from level 1 to level 3.  I can handle designs such as Nephi’s Ship (level 1) but designs like Statue of Moroni & King Benjamin’s Tower (level 3) would require more patience, time and skill than currently possess.

If you know a crafty Mormon who enjoys origami this would likely be a hit.
