Objective: This research aimed to examine the effects of Origami Training on the level of creativity and visual-motor integration of pre-school children. Materials and Methods: The subjects were pre-school children at the age of 5 years. Sixteen participants met the inclusion criteria were divided into experimental group and control group. Each group consisted of 8 participants. The experimental group participated in Origami Training program, whereas the control group received daily regular activities. Origami training program was conducted in 25 sessions. Each session was operated in 30 minutes, 5 days a week and 5 weeks consecutively. This research compared creativity and visual-motor integration scores before and after participating in Origami training of the experimental group and compared those scores between the experimental and control group. Subjects’ creativity and visualmotor integration were assessed by Test for Creative Thinking-Drawing Production [TCT-DP] and The Developmental Test of Visual-motor integration, 6 th edition [VMI 6 th ] respectively. Results: The results of the present study revealed statistically significant differences between the experimental group (mean ± SD = 29.9±5.9) and the control group’s (mean ± SD = 17.9±2.3) posttest creativity scores, and between the experimental group (mean ± SD = 118.9±8.2) and the control group’s (mean ± SD = 104.6±4.7) posttest visual-motor integration scores (p<0.01). Conclusion: These findings suggested that the Origami Training program may help improve creativity and visual-motor integration in pre-school children.
