Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes

We read “Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes” by Eleanor Coerr.  Kabir was so inspired by the story.  We tried to make a crane using the instructions in the back of the book but it was too difficult for us.  Mrs. Kyoko Okamoto taught us how to make cranes in the origami classes for homeschoolers.  Kabir was so inspired that he has made 1000 paper cranes and they are all hanging in 10 garlands of 100 paper cranes each in our house in different rooms.  They are beautiful!

He has been making them wherever we go and giving paper cranes to most people we meet, hoping that his paper cranes will bring good luck to them.  He has been making cranes out of all sorts of papers but my favorites are the miniature ones with candy wrappers.  He just can’t stop and he is making more paper cranes whenever he is inspired.

    Way to go, Kabir! When I read that book to Olivia, Julie, and Clay several years ago, Olivia and Julie (I think it was both of them!) made many paper cranes. They never made 1000 though! Kabir’s cranes are so pretty!
    Hope y’all are doing well! 🙂
