Origami for Children

today ella and had some fun with origami while the boys napped. we had borrowed some books from the library, appropriately entitled "easy origami" and had some paper that we had been given a long time ago.
origami is a great activity for grade-schoolers. it's good for working on following directions, all that folding is great fine motor pratice, and it's a perfect activity for having some parent-child one on one time. our creations were not intricate, we made some very simple things, but we are learning, and perhaps after we practice some more we will be making paper cranes.
