Follow this story along while learning how to make the origami featured in it, as shared by Kytana Priebe, M.A., an art therapist with Children's National Hospital Creative and Therapeutic Art Services.
“I Am Love: A Book of Compassion,” by Susan Verde and Peter H. Reynolds, takes a look at different ways to show kindness and compassion to oneself and others. The art directive encourages kids to employ attention, focus and self-compassion (frustration tolerance) to create rewarding and beautiful origami hearts.
