Kumon Let's Fold
Folding paper provides an important tactile experience and fine motor control lesson for young children. This progresses from simple projects to beginning origami. Along the way, children will create fun and amusing paper toys and art projects.
Over 20 years ago, when our family began this delightful home school adventure, workbooks for toddlers and preschoolers were hard to find. But that was just as well because the ones that were available were inane, insipid, or intolerable.
Just What You've Been Looking For
Workbooks are not appropriate for all young children; many are simply not ready for the fine motor skills that are necessary. Let those children continue to learn at their God-ordained pace and in a way that encourages a love of learning. But when your children are ready to move to focused learning, reach for Kumon Workbooks. The captivating illustrations are child-friendly and the scope and sequence are just what educating parents have been looking for.
Master Fundamental Skills
Kumon centers have been helping children master fundamental skills for over 50 years. Originating in Japan, they have excelled in their primary emphasis of math and reading instruction. With the exception of a page or two of nonsense, these are outstanding books, worthy of any child's time and effort. The skills taught are essential and appropriate, and their presentation can entice even the most hesitant learner. The assignments are short; each is slightly more challenging than the last so that your child progresses at a gradual, comfortable pace.

Both of my children (3 and 5) love this book. And I love that it helps improve their fine motor, dexterity and coordination. I've also noticed that the folding skills learned in this book seem to have improved in practical life skills like folding clothes.
We used these for early practice with lining things up and folding, and my daughter really enjoyed them as a not-too-difficult, cute craft.
My daughter LOVES playing with puppets and dolls. As we've been folding the pages, she's found ways to use what she's made to create plays. It's a great incentive to get her to practice the skills!
My child loved the cutting paper, but the fold was not his cup of tea. Some children may prefer folding, but check out let's cut paper. This was ok.
My children did not like these, just not their thing. However, the colors are great, easy to follow directions.
