Find a piece of paper. Any type of paper can work. Papers of lighter weight will fold more easily. Cut it into a perfect square.
Fold your paper into an origami crane. Here’s a guide.
Write words of peace on your crane. Young children may be invited to simply list words of peace, practicing spelling and good penmanship. Older children and adults may want to write a poem or story.
Draw or paint an image of peace elsewhere on your crane. Markers or ink will work best, allowing the paper to be handled without smudging or cracking.
Find a home for your Peace Crane within your community or you may join our Peace Crane Exchange List to find another group wanting to exchange cranes. Our goal is to place and exchange cranes on every continent and in every nation, in every school, home, community center, and place of business.
Send us an image of yourself and your finished crane. Include the name of the artist if desired, and the exact location of the placed crane. We will add your crane to our map of placed cranes around the world.
Join us on Skype. We are connecting classrooms and teachers each week, to share cranes and make friends around the globe.
Thanks for joining us. You’re one in a million!
