Working with others through paper folding is great for bonding as well. Do them with friends, colleagues, family or making friendship.

Realistic: Creations that exhibit the main features of the subject, often resulting in complex designs with many steps. 2. Minimal: Creations that capture the essence of the subject with minimal folds and with an emphasis on simplicity. 3. Modular: Multiple geometric "units" made from multiple sheets of paper whose flaps and pockets tuck into each other to form polygons or polyhedra. Typically, all sheets are folded in the same way or in a small number of ways. 4. Composite: As with modular origami, multiple sheets of paper are used, but in this style each sheet is folded differently to realize a different part of the subject. Composite origami was one of the most common styles in the 1950s and ‘60s but is relatively uncommon today. 5. Practical: Models that have a real–life application, such as for use as envelopes, boxes, cups, dishes, etc. 6. Pureland: A concept suggested by John Smith of England, who proposed a composition system using only square paper and "mountain" and "valley" folds, resulting in models that are easy to duplicate. 7. Tessellations: A geometric folding technique in which the image is created by the pattern of folded edges across the paper. Tessellations are often periodic (repeating) and may be flat or three–dimensional, and many of them exhibit further structure when held up to the light. Not surprisingly, many of the leading practitioners of this technique have been mathematicians. 8. Wet folding: A technique invented by Akira Yoshizawa in which the paper contains a water–soluble glue (known as sizing) and is dampened slightly before folding. The dampness permits the paper to be folded into soft curves, which then harden in durability as the paper dries. 9. Crumpled: A technique created by Paul Jackson and developed by Vincent Floderer that involves the crumpling of the paper before folding. This technique can produce highly realistic organic forms.

Origami teaches kids much far more than how to|the way to|tips on how to fold paper and make cute toys. They learn dexterity, they learn to listen and follow directions. They also learn a bit about creativity and focus, and the whole notion of practice makes perfect.

Nowadays, when people refer to "a thousand origami cranes," they generally really mean a thousand. But in the past, the phrase "a thousand origami cranes" referred to a large number of paper cranes. The number did not have to be exactly 1,000.

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.

Holidays are celebrated with colorful origami decorations made by the family. On children‘s day (formerly boy‘s day), children make colorful carp: a fish that swims upstream, against the current. This symbolizes strength. During the summer, Tanabata, The Star Festival is celebrated. Live bamboo branches are decorated with origami stars and other paper decorations in a manner which brings to mind a decorated Christmas tree.

However, teaching children how to do origami is not as easy as falling off a log. Prepare yourself with these tips to ensure a successful paper folding session.
