To assess pre-test and post-test level of anxiety among hospitalized children in experimental and control group 2. To determine the effectiveness of Origami in reducing anxiety level of hospitalized children in experimental group. 3. To compare the pre and post-test level of anxiety among hospitalized children in control group. 4. To compare the post-test level of anxiety among hospitalized children in experimental and control group. 5. To find the association between pre-test level of anxiety among hospitalized children in experimental and control group with selected demographic variables. HYPOTHESES: H1: There will be a significant difference between the pre and post- test level of anxiety among hospitalized children in experimental and control group. H2: There will be a significant association between pre-test level of Anxiety among hospitalized children in experimental and control group with selected demographic variables.

In control group, Pre-test showed that 30 (100%) children had moderate level of anxiety and 8 (26.67%) had mild level of anxiety and in post-test 22 (73.3%) had moderate level of anxiety. The post-test mean anxiety score among the samples in the experimental group was 33.73 with SD 4.05 where as in the control group it was 60.8 with SD 8.07. The mean difference was 27.07. The calculated ‘t’ value was 16.60 which is more than the table value(2.05). Hence it was highly statistically significant (p < 0.05).
