She had done these before, but a long time ago. We set up a video tutorial on youtube which was awesome. I needed to see someone doing it, not just look at diagrams of folding paper in a book. By the end of the day I had it down and didn't need to watch the guy do it anymore. I was so proud of myself ;-)
We did two sizes, the larger crane with the piece of paper the size it came in and then divided some sheets in 4 to make the mini cranes. (Note the cootie catcher in the right hand corner ;-)
Bright, colorful cranes :-)
After finishing them, we started to string them so I could hang them up. Before that though, I had to take some fun pictures in the bright sunlight!
Those shadows are so awesome.
After this, I strung up the rest and hung them in the window.
There were still 3 left over, so I hung them over my art desk :-)
