School Boredom Busters
School can be challenging. Children of all ages have fears about making friends and being accepted. Here are some activities that can help children meet new friends through play at school, or at least keep them occupied during lunch and free time.
This is a great game to play in the lunchroom with the child sitting across from you. All you need is half a piece of piece of paper. The Paper Football Association web site has directions and rule on how to play this simple but fun game. Remind your child that he should ask permission to play this game at school.
Origami is a great way to entertain yourself and amaze your classmates. These claws are very easy to make. Go to "Danielle and Friends' Designs Page" for directions.
You can find other origami things to make such as boxes, animals, toys in books from your local library or online. One of Danielle's favorite origami books is "Origami to Astonish and Amuse".
Another really good book for kids who are just starting is "The Joy of Origami" by Margaret Van Sicklen. This book include printed paper for each project.
"Absolute Beginner's Origami" by Nick Robinson is another great book for anyone who wants to learn orgami. It has photographs of each step.
