Origami is a fantastic craft and activity kids can do independently once they learn the basics. Origami teaches patience and concentration as kids follow step-by-step instructions to create intricate folds. It’s like a puzzle that brings joy and satisfaction once completed, but much easier to keep around. Origami enhances fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, making it a valuable developmental exercise.

The great thing about these corner bookmarks is that the bookmark is folded the same way. Once kids learn how to create the pocket that forms the bookmark, they can decorate it any way they want.
