Kumon Let’s Fold

Sweet Pea is 28 months old.

KumonFold

 Material:

 Procedure:

  • The book contains instructions for demonstrating how to fold each of the pages.

Observations: We have had this book for a couple of months and Sweet Pea struggled with it for a long time.  She enjoyed the pictures and wanted to fold the pages,  but just did not have the finger strength to make a crease.  I had to do much of the work.  She would take a page and flip it around for a while before eventually holding it out to me and asking, “Mom, help.”   She could bend the page, but not actually complete the fold.  I would take her fingers and help her press the crease, but she couldn’t do it on her own the first several times we did this activity.

Recently however, Sweet Pea can suddenly make these folds.   I am always fascinated by how Sweet Pea can wake up one morning and has suddenly gained a new skill that she couldn’t do at all the day before.

Now that Sweet Pea is more able to do the folding, this has turned into a nice little book to bring with us to a restaurant or anyplace I want her occupied with a quiet activity.  It is small enough to fit in my purse and helps keep her entertained while we wait for our food.

Notes from the Trenches: If your tot isn’t ready for it, this book will probably cause some frustration, but overall there weren’t really any problems.

Rating: 3 Stars * (Fun, Easy, Independent – eventually)

  • We have a few of Kumon first books. To tell you the truth, none of them were working for us before 30 months, but Anna was never a queen of fine motor skills 🙂 Now she enjoys doing cutting and folding… occasionally 🙂
