Summer Reading Plans

Last year, we did a super-successful passive program* making 1000 paper cranes for Japan.

I've been looking to do something similar for awhile. This summer, I learned how to make origami stars. They're super fun and SO MUCH easier than cranes.

BUT! What do so with them?

The kids can take them home (and I expect many will go home)

We can string them together into a garland to hang around the room.

I asked on Twitter this morning. Nico suggested filling vases with them for decorations.

Any other ideas?

What passive crafts are YOU doing this summer?




*For those who don't know a 'passive program' is one that the kids do on their own and is often on-going.
