Materials:

  • Origami Paper, 5-7/8 x 5-7/8
  • Tape

These simple kid-made bracelets fold-up in just minutes. I chose the five colors of the flag – red, blue, green, yellow, and black. No origami paper? Simply square any piece of paper, thinner is easier to manipulate. For kids, 5-7/8 square works great. Origami paper can be purchased at any craft store and online too. Step-by-step guide:

  • Fold C to A, creasing along the dotted line, below your original crease.

  • As you see, the fold does not go all the way to the top.

  • Turn the paper over; fold up.

  • Continue to fold up until you reach the top. The wider the fold, the thicker the bracelet. Tip: For longer bracelets that slide on-off the kids wrists, use thinner folds, pictured above.
