It is very common for Japanese children to learn origami at kindergarten age, starting with simple figures, and moving on to the more complex as they improve their skills. A person who is skilled at origami can make a crane in just a few short minutes, and a kabuto (helmet) in as little as 30 seconds.
Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper. Together, they form the word, "origami". It is an art form that has been handed down from parent to child through many generations. Origami involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding. Animals, birds, fish, geometric shapes, puppets, toys and masks are among the models that even very young children can learn to make in just one sitting.
Besides being fun to make, many origami models can be useful. You‘ll find some of them in the "Fun Folds" section and many more in the "Links" if you search diligently.
Origami is an art that doesn‘t require you to be an artist. To fold an origami crane, frog, butterfly, or even a ninja star you need just accuracy and patience. Our step by step animated origami diagrams are not going to challenge your patience, however, because they are very easy to follow, even for a child. You don‘t have to remember a number of origami bases — each model starts from a plain piece of paper. You don‘t have to know the names of the folds — the text tips don‘t contain special terms. Our step-by-step instructions are the easiest way to learn how to make traditional origami animals, flowers, boxes and lots of other interesting things. By the way, origami develops logical reasoning, attention span, spatial thinking and fine motor skills. Consider that when you’re trying to keep fidgety kids busy.
