Have you tried origami ? I have been enjoying it since I was 5 years old I remember. It is fun really. Kids try to read,try to solve and creat.
I guess my mother liked kids playing and being quiet.
Since my son need to write cards to say thank you to his teachers, I started creating origami again. He writes,and I fold.
I like to make some kinds of boxes,dish,card case, book marks...
Yes! They are usable in our daily life.
I am giving them to my friends and son's friends to say thank you.
Origami is my meditation now.
It is always in my bag. ^ ^
