We all get bored waiting for dinner, right?!
Use the napkins and make some origami! Have your child copy your design and then see what she can come up with on her own!
|Take a look around the table and use a variety of media! Sugar packets make nice details on a house.|
Origami has several benefits:
- Motor Planning
- Eye-hand coordination
- Attention to detail
- Spatial-temporal skills
- Bilateral motor coordination
- Fine Motor Coordination and dexterity
|Who can make the prettiest bouquet?|
|This is just like the dog that we use to test children with Lucy Jane Miller's Miller Function and Participation Scales (M-Fun)|
|This is our attempt at duplicating the fish on the M-Fun!|
Stop the food fights and try origami, instead!
Do you have any interesting strategies to occupy the kids at restaurants?
