"Children would easily follow a dictation which would result in an octagon, hexagon, pentagon, etc., but were unable to repeat it the following day. After various unsuccessful attempts to simplify the method of drawing these figures, my attention was called to paper folding and cutting. The ease and interest with which the children would make the four-pointed star, the four-leaved rosette, and the equilateral triangle, as outlined by The Prang Course of Drawing, suggested that possibly other figures... might be made in a similar manner."
