Origami is a traditional ancient Japanese art for creating figures by folding sheets of paper without the use of glue and scissors. The figures made this way are also called Origami. Quilling, also called paper filigree, is a form of art that involves the use of paper strips that are wound, folded in certain shapes or joined together to create an interesting decorative design using special tools. These are two amazing activities, which can help children to learn and have fun at the same time.
Here are some of the benefits of studying and practicing these two arts:
