The benefits of origami?

Postby Nick » Sat Jun 27, 2015 8:57 pm

I've been asked by a teacher what the benefits of origami might be. I said

Origami is an intensely popular and stimulating activity for children - I have taught in dozens of local schools over the years and it has always been a great success. It aids concentration, creativity, dexterity, sharing and co-operative skills, following of instructions, decoration, presentation, maths & geometry (where appropriate), art and above all, a sense of pride in achievement!

What would you say?
