So both kids and Yeti the cat seem to like Origami

During the cartooning class at ARTScool (7 to 10 years old) and the first trend class at Jo-Ann (6 to 11 years old: 3 girls and 1 boy), took a few minutes to share some gliders and other fun origami creations with the students. Since the kids really enjoyed making toy planes and boats, I am reviewing other simple models for possible inclusion in upcoming lesson breaks.
This Kirigami model of a fantasy temple backdrop was quite simple to make and decorate.
Hmm, I don't think this looks like me. Why don't we do some origami now?
Yeti really likes playing with paper, so it was no wonder that he wouldn't take his eyes off the different origami models we tested over the weekend.
I just saw it jump!
Not getting away this time.

Practicing the leaping frog origami model. The smaller frog actually jump higher. Even picked up a bone folder for creating smooth folds easily when working with thicker papers.
Origami Frog Fleet and bone folder. Getting the rhythm for folding assorted origami models in upcoming summer art classes. Really need to find my old origami books or visit the local library to broaden my folding paper repertoire.Found another mini origami book that featured a jumping Frog model that actually has 4 legs.
