My kids have been home for the summer, so we’ve been spending a lot of time crafting the day away. One of the projects we came up with was this origami sailboat garland. We had made an origami heart garland for Valentine’s Day, and I figured these sailboats were easy enough for them to try next. We used origami paper, but any paper cut into squares will do. Once you’re done, you can hang it up for a summer BBQ with origami sailboat place cards to match.
