Origami is an ancient Japanese art of paper folding in which you can make the most beautiful and complicated figures. It's best to use real origami paper, which you can buy at a hobby store or sometimes at a store like Walmart. If you use regular paper, use the thinest paper you have. You can also use colored paper, but heavy construction paper won't fold very well. Or you can color your bird after you're all through folding it. Follow the instructions carefully. And have fun!"
