'Research shows that making things with your hands is great for decreasing stress, relieving anxiety and improving mental health.'
Kids seem to gravitate towards using their hands to create especially when they can see a desired outcome.
These paper accordion chains are fun to make, exciting and provide satisfaction. Using a simple repetitive process the kids are able to create a chain. Watching their response to seeing their chain grow is invaluable.
I look forward to making a video of how to make a paper accordion in the weeks to come.
