How to make an origami boat. We are using
a sheet of letter or A4 coloured paper, but these beautiful boats can be made from all
types of paper, from magazines and maps, to sweet wrappers and wallpaper.
Start with a piece of letter or A4 paper, patterned or coloured side up, and fold in
half. Fold in half again, make and crease, then
unfold. Fold both corners into the centre, to make
a triangle shape. Fold the flap up. Fold both the corners behind the triangle
and then turn it over. Fold the flap up. Poke the fingers to open the triangle out
and then flatten down the right side, to make a diamond shape.
Fold the bottom point of the diamond up to the top point. Turn it over and repeat so
that you have a triangle shape. Poke your fingers inside to open the triangle
out and then flatten down the right side to make a diamond shape. Take the upper corners
of the diamond shape to reveal your beautiful boat.
Take your origami boat to the nearest lake or pond, or if it�s a rainy day try it in
