Sometimes it helps children to understand tragedy such as the recent devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan by letting them help. Carter’s has set up a charity called Cranes for Kids: Giving Hope to the Children of Japan. It works like this: Through April 25, OshKosh will be collecting the paper cranes that you and your children create and sending them to our OshKosh stores in Japan to show them the support and caring of their friends in the United States. OshKosh will donate up to 50,000 articles of clothing.
Show your creativity and compassion!
Pick up a free Cranes for Kids action pack at your local OshKosh store, which includes origami paper and instructions or download our Origami Crane or Easy Origami Crane instructions here and make your own at home.
Here’s link for how to fold the easy origami crane. Here’s a link for the traditional origami crane. And you can use any paper; it doesn’t have to be origami paper if you are unable to drive to the OshKosh store. Just use any paper and cut into a perfect square. It’s easiest if you fold the paper into a triangle shape and trim off the rectangle edge. I wouldn’t recommend newsprint as the ink will get smeary on your hands but newsprint paper would work fine!
We’ve set up three easy ways for you to deliver your finished crane(s):
