Amate Cut Paper Kit

Amate Cut Paper Kit

Spring 2011 Toys
Ages: 6 & Up
Manufacturer: Eye Can Art
Price: $20.95

The delightful Amate Cut Paper Kit includes everything needed to make up to 9 cut paper designs. The instructions give an age appropriate explanation of the history of the craft, and it teaches children the terms symmetry and asymmetry, an understanding of which the kit promotes. Amate means paper in the Otomi tribes language, and the Otomi tribe believe that symmetrical designs bring people good luck. One child tester, excited to learn that, set out to gift others with lucky symmetrical paper crafts.
