Bend, Fold, and Crease a Paper Masterpiece!

PAPER PLAY THE ART OF THE FOLD
Developmental Activation: patience, precision, fine motor skills

In Paper Play, children see a piece of paper in a whole new light! The activity teaches the art of folding a flat piece of paper to create a new paper sculpture. Children learn traditional Origami techniques to make paper animals, flowers, fortune tellers, and other impressive creations. Paper Play motivates children to consider how they can transform one common material into an intricate piece of art without cutting or gluing. Instructors will facilitate an environment of patience and excitement that allows for children to flourish.

Each PAPER PLAY activity will include elements of the following:
