I use this method also. As a suggestion you might try the cheaper brands -
store name brands. These are a bit thinner than the reg. priced stuff and
you can see the folds better using the overhead. The more expensive is
heavier and sometimes, after two folds, you can't see through it. In this
case, more $ is not better!

Key Curriculum Press's patty paper is neat but it might be a little
slippery for younger hands. You might want to try it first yourself to see.
