Cranes for Cancer (Youth, Teen, Adult)

Full Description

This paper crane folding program is based on the nonfiction book "Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes." Participants will receive an envelope with 25 origami sheets per session, and can register for as many sessions as they wish. All registrants will receive this project by mail. Packets will be sent on the day of the program.

Each completed packet will earn participants one entry into a drawing for an origami gift basket! Participants are encouraged to share their cranes with a local cancer patient or return them to the library when it re-opens to be mailed to an organization for cancer patients.

Want to learn to fold origami cranes, or need a refresher? Instructions will be included in the packets, or you can watch our instructional video – available on our website on June 1.
