I have been folding paper since I was a little boy. Today I still love folding those wonderful boats, boxes, birds and anything that can be used for teaching English. All my kindergarten students become experts in origami by the time they go to elementary school. Here are just a few that were lying around the house. Until the next post, keep folding.

This is the second hole Lee-Kuo finished during the winter vacation, it’s hole no. 8 and it’s called the turnstile. Until the next hole, happy putting.
I made this lovely cube after I had finished my matchstick cube. It uses the same battery and LED set-up as my paper lamps. There is tracing paper inside the cube to give a diffused glow. It’s a very simple and easy to make craft using the 5.5 cm sticks. Download the instructions with template from the downloads page, have fun.
Once again the winter vacation is a time for woodwork and Lee-Kuo has started his mini golf in miniature once again. This is called “V” for victory and is hole 18. Until the next hole, good putting.
This is the keyboard for the iMac which I made for a student drama. You can find the iMac elsewhere on my blog and download a pdf to make it yourself. The keyboard was very easy to construct but took a long time cutting and gluing all the keys. Download the pdf and start making your iMac with keyboard today.
I was asked by some students to help them in a drama competition and they needed an iMac for the stage, so I decided to make a cardboard model for the drama. It was very simple to design and make except for the stand which was a little more complicated. I will put a pdf on the downloads page if anyone needs to make an iMac, it contains all the necessary parts to print-out and put together.
Just before the end of the last semester I decided to let the students make another popsicle project. I designed the holder around the square base so the whole thing was completely improvised as we made it. The students enjoyed it and they all got an eraser and a 2B pencil from their teacher.
