Kirigami

Kirigami means cutting paper in Japanese (kiri = cut, gami = paper).

It’s a fun and easy activity to do with children and you use them for decoration or glue them on to paper or card, etc.

You can also use the cut out pieces for something!

Sometimes I like to make one where the kirigami is based on, for example, my whole life and each cut represents an event or relationship. Then the folded part represents your life in time and the opened pattern represents your life in eternity. Other ideas to try are things like just one day, a relationship or an idea!

The Most Important Thing

When I was walking with Dan to school the other day, we were talking about him cycling home on his own and I said, “Be careful, keep looking around for cars and people – Observation – that’s the most important thing!”

Dan said, “No it’s not!” I said, “Yes it is – what’s more important than observation?”

He replied, “Love!”
