If you try knitting and don’t find it your cup of cake, you don’t need to carry yarn (pun intended) because you can always create origamis.

It’s a paper art made using the ancient Japanese paper folding technique that you can perfect in a few weeks. Just get an origami paper, and YouTube is your friend. Start with easy designs like a cat and gradually move to advanced ones like lion and dragon. It’s a great time pass not only for you but for kids as well.
