Even though I love messy craft, sometimes it nice just get to something nice and easy and clean free to do... So how much fun can you have with one sheet of paper?
Popagami is a twist on origami that has been updated into the 21st Century. An educational activity developing contraction and fine motor skills. I was sent a popagami combo pack which included a book - The World of Popagami, Origami Animal fun and 24 popagami sheets ( animal characters) The sheets can be folded and inflated to create different animal characters.
The animals in the pack accompany the book ‘World of Popagami’ so that you can them use the animals in various seasonal games, parties and decorations.
What I liked about the popagami is its already the right size and ready to fold. The instructions looked pretty confusing to me even though they a re in step by step. I had to do a couple of folds before getting it right. My first attempt was a huge fail, as I didn't follow the instructions for the animal. Whoops!
We got dad to have a go and he made it look so easy, within a few minutes a leopard was folded and inflated. My six year old mastered it pretty well with needing a bit if help in some places. The use of Imagination to create these animals is amazing and is a real proud moment when its complete. These are a great conversation piece when back to school, making new friends and seeing which animals you can make together.
I was really pleased with how much detail there is in the Popagami and the end result is fantastic. Raiden was pretty calm and enjoyed doing the Popagami and was eager to do more. The book is full of awesome ideas for use of the popagami like gift boxes, lights, mobile and season decoration's.
The Combo pack is £7.99 and I think is fantastic for the money. I do think they are aimed at slightly older children, maybe junior age.
I have a combo pack up for grabs, please see the Rafflecopter on how to enter below.
