Origami for Seniors

Origami is a way of expression, and is also a great way to stay engaged and creative. Research shows that origami can help people recovering from hand injury or surgeries by improving hand control, and fine motor coordination, as well as building muscle. It stimulates the brain while the hands create shapes, keeping both mind and body sharp. It is relaxing, enhances self-esteem and provides a sense of achievement.

  • Hand-eye coordination 

  • Mental skills

  • ADHD, anxiety and depression management

  • Slowing the progression of  Alzheimer

Origami Session at Moldaw

We started our session with upper-body exercises, engaging the arms, wrists, hands, and fingers. During our second origami session at Moldaw, we made four dreidels to celebrate Hanukkah. The students enthusiastically shared with me the traditional ways to play with dreidel. Amidst the creative folding, we engaged in delightful conversations about choosing gifts for their grandchildren. The atmosphere was filled with joy, making it a memorable and happy time we spent together.


Origami Session at Moldaw

We began with some upper-body exercises, which included using our hands, wrists, and fingers. The students were 89 and 100 years old. Our first origami session at Moldaw was filled with laughter, happy smiles, and a bit of Jewish history education (mainly for me!). The students created beautiful doves to celebrate their new year, Rosh Hashanah.


Halina is an exceptionally kind and patient origami teacher. My husband and I have little artistic skill, and yet with her excellent guidance and step by step instructions, we made rather nice creations which we treasure.
