Homeschooling my 4 children led our family to find imaginative and creative ways to use ordinary household items for creative make believe and play. Once my children were exposed to crafting with paper, cardboard, duct tape and string, this opened the doors for them to design, create and build more intricate “toys” over the years. My hope is that your child will gain simple skills in this class to do the same.
My Current Experience: I currently teach these exact same paper crafts on a weekly basis to preteen groups via Live Zoom Meetings. My family and I are "theater buffs" and have designed and created parade floats, stage props, stage furniture pieces for musical theater and plays.
7-8 pieces of white printer Paper Scotch Tape Scissors Glue stick Clear table space to fold and cut paper Optional: Silver permanent marker to color blade silver 8 feet of brown twine to decorate handle
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental Advisory: 1) Scissors will be used to cut paper. 2) Please be available to assist your leaner if they have difficulty making origami type folds in paper. Sometimes it is difficult for a child to see what I am doing on screen and mirror that with their paper folding. 3) This class is labeled 9-14 yrs old because of the difficulty of folding thick layers of the paper, and learners maturity needed in following step by step directions.
