FUN PAPER FOLDING ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS
Simple paper folding crafts for kids are a great activity and one of our favorite boredom busters. Paper folding is a craft that can be done independently or in a group and it can be done quietly or with lots of noise so it's very versatile. There are also different levels of skill for paper folding so you can pick projects perfect for different age ranges. Since paper folding can be done quietly, it's a particularly fabulous way to have children utilize down time when the noise level... is an issue. Origami, or paper folding, is a wonderful way for kids to strengthen memory, hand-eye coordination and realize how important it is to follow directions.
Here are some fun paper folding activities that are easy to teach and fun for kids, too!Continue to 2 of 8 below.
