Paperfold Pigs

"Origami" is a Japanese term, but paper folding is also a Chinese activity. Some say that it originated in China. Here's The World's Largest Origami Pig. If you want to fold - or teach others - try these directions:
  • The classic "Pig face" that even the youngest can fold is in "Origami in Motion".
  • A different pig's head
  • A little more complex is this standing Pig.
  • Jung's standing Pig (not quite the wild boar fold that I adore).
  • Different ** pig directions with no photo.
Some origami animals can free-standing. I also like gluing them to paper or cardstock to make greeting cards - certainly it is hard to figure out what else to do with some of the animal faces that even the youngest can make.
