Make a barn full of amazing animals with this fun collection of projects based around farmyard animals and crops. There’s a sheep dog, chicken, lamb, pig, and rabbit to fold from the Animals section, then apples, corn, pumpkins, and tomatoes that are grown in the fields. Also included is a scarecrow to keep your crops safe, plus a farmhouse for the farmer to live in. Every project comes with simple step-by-step instructions and clear photographs, as well as helpful arrows showing you where to fold. Each design has also been given a skill rating, so start with an easy one and once you’ve mastered that, move on to something a bit more challenging. Fifty specially-designed pieces of origami paper are included with the book, meaning you can start folding right away.
