Kumon Let's Fold
View Sample Pages
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.

For whatever reason, my preschooler loves cutting, coloring, writing, learning, etc, but really struggles with folding. This is great for her development!
This was my daughter's first Kumon workbook and she LOVED it. She wanted to so badly do 'schoolwork' after she saw her older brother spending time with me and these were perfect for her. She learned how to fold, cut, color within the lines etc. etc. Great addition to your homeschool for little ones.
My kids have enjoyed Kumon maze books, so when I was looking for an activity book for my preschooler this folding book was a no-brainer. She has enjoyed the challenges, but it hasn't been too difficult for her to do on her own. It has been fun to see her make her own crafts and celebrate her accomplishments as she shares them as gifts for others.
I have two children, a 7 year old girl & a 4 year old boy. They both love the Kumon workbooks. I have to stop by 4 year from trying to finish an entire book in 1 evening. He loves the cutting books best and especially loves receiving this certificate at the end. The books for my 7 year old are very good too. We have enjoyed the money series along with the crafts. We enjoy going through the books together. My 7 year old enjoys helping her younger brother complete books she has already completed. The books also use a very nice paper and are bright and colorful.
I have found the Kumon series of workbooks to be useful for all of my children who have used them. The books dealing with fine motor skills are excellent; some of the pages can be done by young children with practically no assistance (such as in the cutting, tracing, and maze books), while others need a bit of direction from a sibling or parent (such as folding and crafts). I have mixed feelings about some of the math skills workbooks: The money workbooks are quite good and have some variety in the pages, but I think the time books are somewhat tedious and aren't as effective. The number workbooks have some pages that involve a lot of writing which my children found boring and tiresome, but are still useful overall.
