Anne, our director, brought us instructions to make origami cicada today. She made plenty of copies and put them at the reference desk with paper squares in many colors. Knowing that clients may ask for help, I made two in advance. This photo shows the second attempt, which came out much better than the first. Now I am taking a copy of the instructions home to my daughter. We have some nice origami paper there, which we can use for some fancier cicada.
