These games will appeal to kids of all ages and personalities. Beyond having fun, origami engages children's minds with the physical world--allowing them to make discoveries and solve problems. Research shows that origami stimulates the logical and creative sides of the brain, so both zones are actively engaged when folding. It also teaches the basics of geometry and has concrete benefits for developing minds.
