Lately I've been really into origami. To me, it's relaxing and focusing. Today, I will be sharing three cool origami activities.
Tip: If you don't have origami paper at home(beacause I know most of us don't have origami paper laying around), you can use construction paper or any paper and just cut it 15x15 centimeters or 6x6 inches.
Special thanks to Dessa for helping me make this! All you need is 1 sticky note(per fox)and a pen or pencil if you want to draw a face on it. So sorry for some parts in the video having poor quality but I hope you'll enjoy!
These are really easy and perfect for kids waiting to do something. Make them as creative as your imagination will take you. Monsters, donkeys, dogs, cats, anything!
This one is probably the hardest one of the three. The folding part is easy, but once you start combining and attaching, it will get trickier. Click on the picture to learn how to make these fun and addicting origami cubes!
Thanks for visiting my blog and hope you can join me next time I post some cool things!

Watch this video to find out about Discipline!
The kind of discipline i'm talking about is doing the things you need to do to get the results you want to get.
Hebrews 12:11 NCV We do not enjoy being disciplined. It is painful at the time, but later, after we have learned from it, we have peace, because we start living in the right way.
If you want to become something no one else is you have to do things no one else does.
Discipline will develop good character, and good character leads to Godly Living.
Discipline isn't always fun. Sometimes it can be hard, but it builds godly character and helps you become who God has created you to be.
Write/think one area you need ot have better discipline in, and write down one thing you can do about it.
Visit www.bible.com or go to the Bible App and find the plan: Godly Living
Again, Thank you to Loop for including this information, but the video was made by Ximena Romero.
Have you ever seen those fancy lettering some people do? Wondering if they use a computer or are just geniuses. Well, i’m here to help you get started if you’re interested! Some of you know that I do my own hand lettering and calligraphy. I am self taught and have been doing it for awhile.
Anyways, let’s start!
You can use you basic paper but sometimes I like using a whiteboard just because it’s a bit easier sometimes.
If you do decide to use a whiteboard, basic dry erase chisel tip markers should do it.
Or you might be using paper. I sometimes just used my Crayola Super Tip Markers which are probably the easiest and cheapest option. But I also went to Michael’s to buy markers and they did have some hand lettering markers for about $10. If you are a beginner, these are probably the best choices. I even saw some markers at Target for a pretty good price!
2. Getting Started
Calligraphy/Hand lettering is not just traditional cursive. It’s a more flowy and open type of cursive. Start practicing random phrases, the alphabet, names, etc. on your surface.
You’re probably wondering, how do I do that Ximena?
Watch this video to find out more:
It’s always important to practice. I kept a notebook for practice my lettering.
4.What’s the difference?
You might be wondering what the difference between hand lettering and Calligraphy.
Hand lettering is all types of handwriting not only cursive. It can be big and bold or thin and curvy.
Calligraphy is more focused on different types of cursive.
Here is a link to a more defined difference between both:
Those were just some super quick tips but if you search online, you can find tons of printouts and practice pages that could teach you some more.
Thank you so much for reading and please remember to subscribe, like, and comment any questions!
