Here are some pics of the fun Jack and I had making origami a while ago. Origami paper can be bought from any craft or art supply store (like Dick Blick, AC Moore, Michaels…) and it comes in packs of a variety of colors and patterns. I find it easier to just get origami paper rather than cut down paper because 1) I can never measure a perfect square, 2) origami paper needs to be thin in order to get it fold well, and 3) time is money so just buy the paper. Origami teaches a number of skills: fine motor development, following steps, abstract thinking, and patience. We checked out some books from the library to get us started on some simple ones. And then we just googled “origami” and found many online websites of different projects… including dinosaurs and Pikachu!
