Fun Origami Crafts for Kids

Origami is the art of folding paper. It gets its name from the Japanese terms ori (“folding”) and kami (“paper”). Traditional origami involves folding a single square sheet of paper (typically with a colorful side) into a sculpture without cutting, gluing, taping, or even labeling it.

Origami can be incredibly complex with lifelike representations or simple patterns that are simpler to fold but yet quite recognizable.

Benefits of Origami

Other modes of learning are stimulated by origami. Hands-on learning has been found to increase spatial visualization skills. Such abilities enable children to understand, classify, and create their own vernacular for the world around them. With the help of origami, kids can take on challenges that aren’t assigned to them and make friends with failure (i.e. trial and error).

Origami is one activity that combines both cerebral and physical stimulation. Hand-eye coordination, fine motor abilities, and mental attention are all aided by origami. The usage of one’s hands directly stimulates brain locations.
