Monkey Climbs a Mountain – a beginner level project that is easy to make and fun to play with.   It might take a little bit of practice to get the monkey to climb but once you get it shimmying up, it’s fun to do over and over.

This ghost resembles a Dementor somewhat.  The design is an intermediate level of folding.    After the tutorial, I had a little bit of fun with a Harry Potter figurine that we had laying around.  :)

**   Note about the use of scissors in origami… it wasn’t until the mid 1900?s that the rules of using a square sheet and no cutting/gluing came about.  Traditional Japanese origami, which has been practiced since the Edo era (1603–1867), has often been less strict, sometimes cutting the paper or using nonsquare shapes to start with.
