Summers get fun-tastic for kids


Origami
Origami is also one of the most well-known art activities that kids learn during their vacations. Origami experts undertake several summer camps for kids ranging from various groups, for kids as young as four to teenagers. These classes prove to be very useful, as the kids learn making decorative items, like greeting cards, show pieces, etc. One can also learn cane work, where kids learn to make small coasters, table pieces, baskets and delicate ornaments.

A dip in a pool
If the swimming pool in your complex has always seemed abandoned, it may not be so now. Just take a look at it from your window now — there couldn't be a more crowded place than the pool this season. It's not just society swimming pools, but the ones at sports complexes too that are packed with swimmers — kids and adults alike. There are several summer camps for kids that teach kids basic as well as advanced swimming techniques — there are others that are only for fun and leisure. The swimming pool attracts maximum crowd this season as it is one of the coolest place to be, during the hot summers.

Sales, reading and activity sessions
You can make shopping and some regular activities really exciting for kids by giving them a fresh twist. Kids can come together to host a garage sale, wherein they can sell toys, books and stationary, giving them out at really reasonable rates. While, you can also organise reading and indoor activity sessions at each other's homes. They can also have reading sessions of story books and indoor activities. Being indoors, kids can be safe from the scorching heat and can be treated with yummy snacks.

Origami Ornaments, The Ultimate Kusudama Book

Just in time for the holidays comes the newest origami design book from the author of "Origami Rockets" and "Origami in King Arthur's Court".
About this book
Origami Ornaments is based on the design of traditional Japanese Kusudama ceremonial spheres. But the Japanese designs regularly require the use of glue to hold several parts together. Lew Rozelle has designed four basic models - base, joiner, clip, and hinge - which can be folded together, hanging in lovely globe or lantern shapes, thus remaining true to origami purist standards. Folded out of colorful paper, the ornaments can be made small enough to hang on a Christmas tree or large enough to hold aromatic potpourri. As the ornaments rest they will open gently, like flowers, but still not come apart. Also included are instructions for incorporating string for hanging as well as tassels into the design - a lovely finishing touch. There are no limits to the number of unique ornaments you can make from the four basic models. Try using various wrapping paper patterns and colored paper - the possibilities are endless. Origami Ornaments is the perfect book for holiday crafters and origami enthusiasts...
