I too love doing the peace cranes. Easily connected to geometry. I just did
paper making with primary students. We used recycled papers; the youngest
made little girl and boy shapes using large cookie cutters as our deckles.

What about origami cranes and/or animals? I have seen very large trees
decorated using only origami in various colors and it is very pretty. The
bulletin board paper most schools have is a good weight if you cannot
purchase origami papers.
