Paper craft is one of the most exciting activities, I think. After all, it is interesting to make a simple sheet, albeit a colored one, any kind of figure, cutting it out or folding it.
Origami translates from Japanese as folded paper. Therefore, this is exactly what the art of folding various shapes out of paper is called. Despite the fact that this interesting needlework is rooted in ancient China, it became widespread only after World War II.
This hobby is enjoyed by both adults and children from the age of three. It is only important to determine the complexity. In my photo selection, the figures are designed for children up to 6-7 years old, plus there are a couple of more difficult tasks for those who will do well with the rest and want to master this technique further.
I think any mom wants to captivate her child so that the occupation would be not only interesting, but also useful, informative for him. Origami is a good way to achieve this.
The addition of various paper figures develops spatial and logical thinking in a child, stimulates thought processes and creative activity, develops manual dexterity, and also teaches accuracy, attentiveness, perseverance, and patience.
In short, engaging in origami, a child will acquire very important qualities and skills that will be useful to him both for school and throughout life. After all, the creative spirit needs to be helped to reveal from the very childhood.
