They learn creativity and perception and surprisingly they learn to relax. In a world where so much is rushed, sitting quietly and folding paper figures can bring a sense of balance and peace to even young children. When doing origami with young children it is important to remember certain things: 1. Origami is an art or craft that involves folding paper. For people who aren't familiar with this activity, this may seem juvenile and easy. There are origami projects that are simple such as making a paper airplane. There are also very complex origami projects which require many pieces of paper to be folded. They feel it is their design and their expression and it is meant to be seen and appreciated not mass produced. Also since every folder has a slightly different touch and technique an artistic origamist's piece would be almost impossible to duplicate. Many of the Origami models back in the Edo era were made possible only due to the use of Washi. Money origami may not sound very interesting to some people but to others it is quite fascinating and a reason to continue looking for new objects to make with their money. For people who are familiar with the art of origami, money origami is not a new concept. However for those who know little about origami, they may be astounded to see what can actually be made from a single dollar bill. On the other hand, since there are no known records of Chinese paper folding and the oldest Japanese records only go back to the 18th century some still believe that the invention must have been Japanese. Buddhist monks brought paper with them to Japan in the late 6th century along with the art of paper folding. However if the interest is there, an individual can learn how to do advanced origami. Many people are so fascinated with the idea that they design their own origami compositions. This would definitely require knowledge regarding mathematics, as well as creativity and vision. The very first origami project a person might do, without even knowing it is making a paper airplane.
