Money Origami!

Money Origami Peacocks
A week or so ago, the tooth fairy visited our house and left these origami peacocks made of dollar bills. My kids have loved getting these from the tooth fairy over the years. They've gotten boots, ninja stars, hearts, rings, giraffes, butterflies, fans, and other fun shapes. I'm not sure where the tooth fairy learns how to make them, but there seem to be a lot of nice websites that give excellent instructions. A couple that are simple to follow are: Money Origami (A thru H) and Money Origami (H thru Z). Sometimes it helps to follow a video that you can pause while following along. For example, here's a video showing how to fold a peacock like the one above.
