So to give you some ideas of fun surprises you can make for Madame with your kids, we’ve come up with this selection of origami for Mother’s Day. Good discovery!
Are you looking for creative ideas to make small gifts with your children to spoil Madame on the occasion of Mother’s Day approaching? These different models have been selected for their symbolism, in particular linked to love or wishes for good health and happiness. These are beautiful gifts to make and then offer. There is no doubt that these folds will brighten Madame’s awakening on May 29.
To present an origami is to offer a small gift that you, or your children, have taken the time to make with your own hands. It’s a cute gift that doesn’t come with any special costs (unless you want to buy origami paper) and is accessible to everyone. Here is the selection made with the YouTube channel Laetitutos, dedicated to origami.
#1 An origami rose
The rose is by far the favorite flower of French women and men. It is not considered the queen of flowers for nothing. This easy to fold origami in rose shape is suitable for young and old.
#2 An origami crane (or 1,000 cranes!)
The crane is the international symbol of origami. But it is also a symbol of peace that makes it possible to wish those to whom it is offered good health, happiness, love and longevity. This is the legend of the 1000 cranes. A special gift for Mother’s Day.
