Hey there! this is how to make "claws" out of paper. Kids love 'em; they like to pretend they're bears and stuff like that. It is highly recommended that you use recycled paper, but you don't need to.
Ok lets get crackil-lackin'!
Note: i know I'm basically setting myself up for "that's what she said" jokes. (especially step 8 and 9) Even I was laughing to myself while making this. but please, this is supposed to be "kid friendly" so say it to yourself, don't comment. thank you.

Step 1: Fold Corner Over
Grab the top- right corner and fold it over so that it lines up with the left side of the paper.
Step 2: Fold the Corner Down
Grab the top left corner and fold it down so it touches the bottom left corner
Step 3: Fold the Corner Over
fold the center right corner inwards so it touches the center of what is now a box.
Step 4: Fold in Half
fold it in half diagonally so it makes what looks like one triangle
point the 90 degree angled tip on the triangle down. then take the left coner and folf it across and up so it there is a line in the middle of the triangle. this is hard to explain but look at the pictures for a better explanation.
Step 6: Wrap the Paper Over
Wrap the right triangle over the obtuse triangle. Again, look at the pictures for a better explanation.
Edit: Unfortunately I don't have a video camera, but I tried to clarify a bit.
Step 7: Flip and Repeat
Flip it over and repeat the last step
Step 8: Put the Corner in the Hole
take the top corner that you just folded up and put it in the space right in font of it. It's less complicated in the pictures so take a look at 'em.
Step 9: Make a Finger Hole.
open up the space in the picture below and then put it on your finger. Tadaa now you're done!
Step 10: Make Some More!
Now that you're done, make some more! make an entire set so every finger has one!
