The 5-page introductory section also teaches kids basic origami folds or "bases," including a valley fold, mountain fold, step fold, kite base, fish base, waterbomb base, square base, inside reverse fold, and outside reverse fold.

Kids will love to share their Christmas origami creations when they're done: origami art is great for Christmas tree ornaments, holiday place settings, gift-wrapping accessories, or for Christmas decorating around the house.
