Very cute idea. This is a great project to introduce kids to origami because the video definitely makes it easier for following instructions. I'd love to make rainbow or patterned whales since there's tons of different kinds of Origami paper out there!

These whales are super cute. The blue paper is bright, but I'm guessing some could be made in gray or white for some variety. It would be fun to make more than one and vary the colors. The video makes it easy to follow the instructions.
