As coordinator of Pacific Ocean Paperfolders (POP), I often meet people from different backgrounds and professions who find new ways to use origami. One of our regular attendees, Anne Kelly-Saxenmeyer, who runs a music and art program for toddlers called PLAY, became involved with POP because her son Jack was into origami. She not only caught the folding bug herself, but found a wonderful way to combine origami and music to engage the 1-5 year-olds in her program. Using just one or two creases, she's able to weave story-songs that stimulate the imagination in a sweet and wondrous way.Videos are embedded below:
Here are two links, performed by PLAY faculty member Angie Engelbart Solomon:

It's nice to be reminded that you don't have to go complex to find pleasure in a piece of paper.
