This traditional origami boat is easy to make. It‘s also a wonderful toy, as it can float on water. Make several to create a bathtub fleet for a child! To make a paper boat move through the water, put a drop of liquid soap at the back of the boat. The changing surface tension will propel the boat forward!
Children love origami. Changing a boring, flat piece of paper into a recognizable 3-dimensional shape is like magic! Indeed, some magicials have wow‘ed their audiences with origami.
And make sure you crease each fold really well, using the side of your thumbnail, or the handle of a pair of scissors. This makes a much neater model in the end, and makes later folds easier to do.
Step 1: Start with a square piece of origami paper. If you only have regular 8.5x11 paper, follow these instructions to make a square sheet. You can also use these colorful Printable Origami Paper. Step 2: Fold the paper in half by folding the top corner to the bottom corner. You should have an upside down triangle. Step 3: Fold part of the top down so that the edge is about halfway down. Don‘t make this flap too thin because this will become the wings. Step 4: Turn the paper over. Step 5: Take the bottom corner of the top layer and fold it up like this. Step 6: Fold the figure in half by folding the left side over to the right. Step 7: Now fold that same flap back like this to make one of the wings. Step 8: Fold the other wing back also. Step 9: Push the center of the head in and flatten. This is called an inside reverse fold. Step 10: And tada! You have yourself a bird. Now set it free! Just kidding. Don‘t throw it in the air. It will just fall down and you‘ll be disappointed.
