Origami--creative paperfolding--is a popular art form in Japan. Middle school students learned to make a variety of folded creations in their study of Japan, and the Samurai helmet was one of their favorites!

After doing the basic folds, students decorated their helmets with collage (using construction paper and colored foil) and markers. We used instructions found in a variety of books, but you can also view directions for making a helmet here.
