Blog Tour - Bible Origami



About the book: Keep your children's hands busy during church services with Bible Origami. Instead of folding the service programs into paper airplanes, they can fold Noah's ark, an oil lamp, or Joseph's coat! As you develop the unique skill of creating these simple-to-intermediate origami designs, you will find opportunities to use them with all ages for lessons, activities, crafting, and everyday fun!
My review: One of my very favorite things about blogging about books is running across fun books like this to review! I love seeing all of the great things that are out there to keep your kids occupied during church meetings and this one is just great!
What better idea is there than to keep your hands busy and your mouth quiet (hopefully) while sitting in Sacrament meeting. And, they usually give you a program that you can use for paper, bonus! I loved the cute ideas in this book. Each of the ideas goes with a scripture story. The illustrations were cute and I completely loved that there were fun facts about each of the stories to go along with the origami idea. I also loved that there are different skill levels represented, there are even a couple of different origami models in different skill levels - genius! I have included just a couple of pictures that I thought were perfect for this Christmas season, Baby Jesus in his manger.

This is a cute, fun book that kids of all ages will enjoy!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
