In our time together, we will create origami to celebrate Tanabata, a supernatural love story. According to this modified Chinese legend, the two lovers are represented by stars, hence the Star Festival. People in Japan write their own wishes on colored paper and typically tie them to bamboo trees. Today we will make Tanabata origami with the hopes that your own passionate wishes come true!
