Family Art with the Sony VAIO Tap 20 #TryVaioTap20 #SonyVAIO

I participated in this Sony/Intel sponsored post with Burst Media, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

We are a crafty family. We love making things, trying new things and finding fun ways to re-do things that we have done before.

Years ago my sister-in-law came to live with us and she was obsessed with Origami. She could make pretty much anything and it was pretty cool. My kids loved trying it out with her and making some fun things as well.

Once she moved out, the Origami kind of stopped as well. About six months ago, my son decided that he wanted to try it again so we found some YouTube videos and bought some paper so we can start making some fun stuff.

All three children decided to start with cranes but my son wanted to do something else as well but he wasn’t sure what. He said that he would decide after he made a few cranes.

First, to start making the cranes, we printed out this sheet:

While the printed instructions were helpful for my son, my two younger daughters really needed hands on instruction as well so we found a video to help. Check out the video my kids used to make the Origami Crane:

What is great about watching a video on the Sony Vaio Tap 20 is how large and portable the screen is. They can start and stop the video when they need to or even back the video up when needed.

My kids could each take turns having the screen right next to them or watch it together. But when they laid the screen flat, it was easier to make this:

All three kids made tons of Origami cranes in every color of paper that we could find.

My son then started his special project. Without instructions, he decided that he wanted to make a duck. So he created a small yellow square and then glued in on top of a larger square.

Using Family paint, he then drew the duck feet, two wings and eyes. He cut them out ad glued them onto his duck. He used a Sharpie to make the eyes exacted what he wanted.

Here is his super cute Origami duck (no directions because he did it all freehand):

    I love the Origami Crane! What a cute idea. I used to have a VAIO and LOVED IT! I may need to consider it again for my next computer.

    It’s amazing that your son was able to make the duck without any instructions! I’d love to have the computer.
