How to make Origami: Categories

Origami is an art that doesn’t require you to be an artist. To fold an origami crane, frog, butterfly, or even a ninja star you need just accuracy and patience. Our animated origami diagrams are not going to challenge your patience, however, because they are very easy to follow, even for a child. You don’t have to remember a number of origami bases — each model starts from a plain piece of paper. You don’t have to know the names of the folds — the text tips don’t contain special terms. Our step-by-step instructions are the easiest way to learn how to make traditional origami animals, flowers, boxes and lots of other interesting things. By the way, origami develops logical reasoning, attention span, spatial thinking and fine motor skills. Consider that when you’re trying to keep fidgety kids busy.
