Paper Toys Website
With higher level kids, I look for activities that will challenge them mentally as well as physically. Paper folding can be challenging visual-perceptually as well as the difficulty with fine motor and manipulating the paper in the right way. A cute website that has different toy patterns to print, cut, and fold out of paper is called The Toy Maker. She has a whole page of free printables, and she has a book on amazon too called The Toymaker’s Christmas: Paper Toys You Can Make Yourself. I am going to try making the marble mice.

I really love your website…I receive you in my inbox and always enjoy your great ideas. I’m definitely going to add you as a great resource on my front page, so look out for that!
What a nice comment. Thank you. I just added you to my blog reader as well.
I am a level two student located in a school district. Your website has been so helpful for activity ideas. In OT school they don’t focus too much intervention ideas especially for school base, so thank you! I enjoy getting your email and always come to work telling my C.I. what great ideas you have online.
You’re welcome. I am glad that the website is helpful and serving its intended purpose.
