For those who loved the Origami Yoda series, ART2-D2’s Guide To Folding And Doodling is a must-have. The activity book comes with easy-to-follow step-by-steps for making Star Wars characters, mastering block and bubble lettering, making your own comic book and more.
Clearly this is aimed at young padawans (aged 8-12), but games like pencil pod race and how to fake knuckle cracks mean that parents and siblings can join in, too. Origami figures are easy to master (and much cheaper than buying the plastic alternative!), and there’s a sense of achievement having made their own Star Wars characters like Origami Yoda, Fortune Wookiee and Kirigami General Grievous.
The banter of the previous books is still intact: “You can make your origami puppets fight… Use the force… of your thumb!” It also includes 16-page colour insert with 10 pages of coloured pull-out origami paper, as well as a a section on photographing your origami creations.
It’s entertaining, imaginative and, above all, provides hours of fun activities to enjoy.
ART2-D2’s Guide To Folding And Doodling is out now, published by Amulet. It is available for £8.09 from Amazon.
