Paper Fold is a puzzle game where the player is trying to make a completed image by “folding” a piece of paper so that all of the folds create a picture. If the paper is folded correctly, the image will appear completed and the player moves on to harder images. If the paper is folded incorrectly, the player will need to try again until they are able to get the image folded correctly. 

To fold the paper, the player just needs to tap the portion of the paper that they want to fold. If they change their mind and decide to redo the move, they simply need to tap the piece of paper again to unfold it. There are various themes that the player can choose as well, creating a variety of cute sticker-like images. 

Paper Fold is available for free on Android and iOS but has the option for in-app purchases.

Paper Fold helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Flexibility: Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.

In order to fold the paper in the correct order to create an image, the player needs to use their flexibility and be willing to try some new approaches. The player is able to tap on certain corners to undo a move or hit the reset button to start at the beginning if they are stuck. Players who struggle with flexibility may find that it takes longer for them to solve each puzzle. They should start with the simpler puzzles and not be afraid to take changes and use the undo and restart options to make their way through the more complicated images. 

Focus: Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks. 

In order to complete the puzzle and fold every corner in the correct order, the player needs to focus and pay attention to how each fold adds or takes something away from the puzzle. Players who struggle with focus may find that they get frustrated if they fold pieces that take away from the puzzle. They should start with the simpler puzzles which can help build the focus skills so that when the more complex puzzles arrive, they are able to have the sustained focus needed to complete them.
