O is for Origami Hen Treat Boxes : A-Z Craft Month

by | DIY, Kids, Paper

Origami Hen Treat Boxes |
March is Craft Month, and I’m celebrating with Steph from Crafting in the Rain and several other bloggers to bring you the A-Z Craft Series. This week, we’re creating with the letters N through S. In case you haven’t figured it out, my letter is O for origami! Or, if I were my son, I’d say “origami is for O!” Origami can be taken in a million directions, but I thought I’d start gearing up for Easter and Spring with these little origami hen treat boxes from Origami Spirit.

Four little hens, standing in a row.
One fell down and stubbed her toe.
She tried to rise but wobbled to and fro.
Three little hens, standing in a row.

Who knew I could rhyme, right? Yeah, I pretty much sprained my arm patting myself on the back, I won’t deny it.

I think these little ladies are pretty adorable, and not too difficult to fold if you follow along with this video.  Wouldn’t these make the cutest little table settings or favor boxes?

  7. ChiWei

    I love origami, but most of the patterns are too hard for me, which is why I loved this one.

  8. ChiWei

    Thanks Kara!

    Thanks for the pin Christina!

  15. ChiWei

    Thanks Kara! I think kids would love these as favors, and I like them because they’re paper so I won’t feel super guilty if I have to throw them out later 🙂

  16. ChiWei

    Thanks Bethany! I had to stop myself from going to the store and getting more origami paper. Gotta use what I already have!

  17. ChiWei

    Thank you Leyla for a great video and great instructions! These were just at the right level of complexity for me 🙂

  18. ChiWei

    Me too! It’s gotta be useful for something, otherwise, it’ll just sit there 🙂 And holding candy is a pretty nice thing for these little hens to do!
