this is funny, i'm another canadian paper folding weirdo,:LOL i'm enjoying the links you guys found, i haven't done much origami lately but i'm thinking i must get into it again. the one origami thing i learned when i was little and still do whenever i run into a scrap paper on a table is the balloon one. where you blow it up. its always been my favorite, simple, fun and to the point my little 3 year old has been creating her own little folded and crumpled paper masterpeices, i'm thinking maybe she can learn some folding techniques soon.
any how, .... heres a simple kind of link for small kids that want to do origami ........

.......i'd hammer in the morning....

My 3 yr old likes to crumple up paper and tape or glue it together too, when I'm trying to decipher the origami instructions: He is usually more thrilled with his own creations. When I finally finish my masterpieces, he looks them over and tells me what he thinks needs to change so it can suit his purposes, usually something related to a dragon. One of these days I'll post a pic of one of our modified creations.

Oh, Leaf, I used the Aloha Shirt on that page for my brother's birthday card last year! I used really gaudy wrapping paper. He loved it! And I never could find the link again, so this time I've bookmarked it. I DID find the directions, though, in Rick Beech's Action Origami, which is a fun book (although I'm not sure how the shirt qualifies as action origami).
