Here is a super cute and eas Summer Crafts for Preschoolers.. Our forage into paper crafts continues (creating video tutorials for Origami is so liberating and so so so much easier to follow than step by step photos, I think.. don’t you agree? We have TONS more Origami for Kids ideas for you to check out if you want to have fun with paper!). So today we have this adorable Origami Whale. He is quick. He is easy and he is fun!! I think he would also double up as a cheeky “Bailey” from Finding Dory craft, don’t you think?! Enjoy.
Origami Whale materials:
- 1 square piece of paper
- scissors (optional)
- pen & contrasting paper (optional)
- glue stick (optional)
How to make an Origami Whale:
It really is EASY!! And the kids will love this adorable little paper craft!!!
Aren’t they adorable?? I particularly like the baby whales. So so cute! Hope you have a go and ENJOY!
Step by step written instructions for how to make an Origami Whale.
Take a square piece of paper and fold it across the diagonal. Open it up and fold it again in the opposite direction – you want that diagonal crease to go in both direction and be extra sharpe=.
Open up the square again. Take one edge and bring it to meet the diagonal central line. Repeat with the other side – you should now have a kite shape.
Fold down the top point to meet the central line. Then fold in half.
Take the long thing tip and fold up at a right angle. Give it a sharp crease.
Open up the origami and fold into the opposit direction.
Finally, make a small cut at the top of the tail and fold down.
Draw your facial features and done!
