How to make an Origami Frog with Froglife


Hi my name is James and you’re watching a video from Froglife a national
wildlife charity in this video I’m going to show you how to make a very simple
origami frog we work with many different organizations across the UK and our
origami frog activity is a great way to introduce children to frogs via a really
fun craft so here’s what we’re going to need a small rectangular piece of green
card preferably a six size a glue stick and two googly eyes so to begin with we
will take top right corner of our card fold this to the left side to form a
triangle remember to follow down all your creases as we go open the card back
out and repeat on the opposite side folding the left top corner over to the
right forming another triangle next we open our card out again you should see
your folds have formed an X in the middle of the card we now want to fold
along the middle of this X but the horizontal fold along where the lines
meet now we have the tricky part you should see you now have two small
triangles below the fold you just made here and here use both thumbs and fold
these down and towards yourself as so this bit can be hard though we’ll do
this again follow the two triangles down and toward yourself to create the shape
you see here you okay hard bit over now we need some front frog legs take the
flat on the right of your card and fold this up to the top but a good crease in
here do the same with the left flap to get our left front leg too now we need our body take the right side
of the card and fold this entire section over to the middle repeat this folding
the left side over to the middle and now for our final step spin the card
around and take the flat edge of the back fold this over roughly to where our
front leg starts to finish our back legs take this folded section and fold it
back on itself halfway for some finishing touches put some glue on our
frog where we want to stick our eyes take each of the googly eyes and gently
push them onto the glue so they stick on push down at the back and see how high
your frog can jump if you’ve got more time maybe you could decorate your frog
further or why not try racing them with your friends if you have enjoyed the
