International Day of Peace Celebration - Family Origami Workshop!
Saturday September 21
Guidepost Montessori at Museum Mile
Join us as we celebrate the UN International Day of Peace on September 21st by learning how to fold your very own paper peace crane! This afternoon workshop will be lead by two New York based Origami artists. Children ages 3+ are welcome to attend with their families. Afterwards, children will have the opportunity to exchange their origami art with students from around the world through the Peace Crane Project.
"The Peace Crane Project invites every student on the planet to fold an origami crane, write a message of peace on its wings, then exchange it with another student somewhere in the world. The Project builds friendships, strengthens hand-eye coordination and writing skills, teaches geography, exposes students to new languages and cultures, and EMPOWERS YOUTH to make a difference in their community, country, and world. Classrooms, teachers, students, schools, community groups, and individuals are welcome. It’s FREE to participate!"
