Class Experience

Homeschooling my 4 children led our family to find imaginative creative ways to use ordinary household items for make-believe and play. Once my children were exposed to crafting with paper, cardboard, duct tape, and string, this opened doors of creativity for them to design their own creations. My hope is that your learner will 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 and in-person preteens groups.

My family and I are "theater buffs" and have designed and created parade floats, stage props, stage furniture pieces for musical theater and plays.

Here are the  supplies needed for our class: 

15 pieces of printer paper
Standard size scissors are needed for this craft as we will be cutting through 16 pieces of stacked paper 
Glue stick
Scotch tape
Permanent marker  to use as  a “creasing tool”  and to mark creases 
Space to craft: A table, desk, or hard floor space to fold, cut, tape and assemble  dagger craft
A persevering spirit

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 the 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. However, I have had experienced 7-year-olds who are amazing at folding, bending, and following directions: experience doing these types of crafts far outweighs the age range!
