Folding an Origami Flower

I think it is important to learn how to follow instructions and how to deal with the frustrations that might come along with tricky and unfamiliar ones.  And what better way to practice those skills of following directions, determination and patience?  Origami!

I gave the girls instructions for an origami flower and asked them to fold one.  Not surprisingly, they could not make it work!  But I was pleases to see they each tried a number of times and then folded a faux-origami flower with a smile!  And well, it sort of resembles the one in the instructions!
