This origami activity will challenge your child's problem-solving skills and help improve their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills too, as they carefully fold the paper and draw on two eyes to transform it into a cute penguin. It's a tricky task so you'll have to read the instructions and help them with the more complicated folds. Give them plenty of encouragement and praise along the way to spur them on!

How to extend the magic

Once your child has completed the origami tiger, why not pretend to be big, strong tigers. Imagine you're striding through the tall grass. Make some stomping sounds with your feet - pretend you have large orange and black paws, like a real tiger. You are King of the Forest and you want everyone to know! Let out your loudest ROAAAAAR!
