origami improves fine motor skills?

Post by Caroline » Thu Jan 17, 2013 4:36 pm

Hey everybody,

i'm looking for any studies/articles/books which discuss the approvement of fine-motor-skills through folding/Origami.
I'm doing a training to become an educator (in germany) and i'm on writing my final paper.
As i'm folding a lot with children i'm always foldingfoldingfolding, but i wondered if there were any studies so far which are dealing with this question in scientific manner.
I developed a small study for children from 7-10 years, comparing fine motor-skills of he the kids before "origami-training" and after "origami-training" - duration 4 months.
big thanks in advance,
carol
