Origami Crafting: Daruma
In this one-time class, students will learn about Japanese Daruma dolls and create their own Daruma using origami. This is a great activity to help bring in the New Year!

-solid or simple patterned origami paper in any standard size (such as 15x15cm, 20x20cm, or 30x30cm).

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
