$30 includes the supplies you’ll need to build a strand of paper cranes to hang in your home as an omen of good luck, prosperity and well wishes.
The Japanese word “origami” is a combination of two words in Japanese: “ori” which means “to fold” and “kami” which means “paper”.
In Japan, the crane is a mystical creature and is believed to live for a thousand years. As a result, in the Japanese, Chinese and Korean culture, the crane represents good fortune and longevity. The Japanese refer to the crane as the “bird of happiness”. The wings of the crane were believed to carry souls up to paradise.
Each student will leave with a small strand of paper cranes said to bring good fortune to their home!
