Princess Nagger and the World’s Largest Origami Macaw

Princess Nagger has been having a lot of fun making origami critters lately – she taught herself how to do it by watching tutorials On Demand, and scads of YouTube videos.  Every-other-day she fashions a new one, with whatever scrap of paper happens to be lying around.  Like a piece of clear plastic:

Or the insert to a Happy Meal toy:

But her biggest accomplishment (literally and figuratively speaking) is the ginormous Macaw she created:

PN:  “It took a lot of paper and about 100-feet of tape.  Well, maybe only about 50-feet of tape, but it was a lot of tape.  I’m pretty sure it’s life-size for how big a Macaw is.  Or at least it could be the world’s largest Macaw.”

Pretty impressive, don’t you think?  I can fold a great nose-diving paper airplane, but origami?  I’m all thumbs.

She taught herself to do this? She definitely has a natural talent for it, and I bet she even learned some math in the process!

Happy WW!

What an amazing paper feat! I couldn’t imagine trying to construct a macaw out of paper and tape?!

Anyhow, thanks for hosting!

That’s quite creative! We hosted a Japanese exchange student when I was a kid who taught us some origami, but I don’t think I’d have the patience for it anymore.

She looks like a great origami artist! She should read Sadako and the 1,000 paper cranes. Little things that move the world.

Our daughter has also recently been doing a lot of Origami. She is yet to create one as large as the Macaw, though. Very cool.
