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.
Did you know that when you practice origami, you are activating your whole brain? It has long been known that origami has many benefits like developing eye hand co-ordination, sequencing skills, attention skills, patience, temporal spatial skills, math reasoning etc. but according to the latest research on the brain and the work of Doctor Katrin Shumakov and Yuri Shumakov, when both hands are engaged, impellent motor impulses activate the language portion of the brain.
Here is an Origami classic – and a fantastic Origami project for beginners – The Origami Swan, it very much has that "classic" Origami look about it and introduces some basic folds (i.e. the head) that you will find in many origami projects for kids. So do take a look at this easy paper swan. It is cute and teaches you great skills!
Another childhood classic origami pattern are these adorable little Origami Boats or Paper Boats. This is one of the first origami patterns I taught my children (eventhough many of the above origami for kids ideas are easier), because I have a personal strong association with these from my childhood… you can make them, any time, anywhere and have lots of playful fun! Love.
