Easy Origami for Kids: How to Fold a Dog

  1. Take a square of coloured paper (not too thick, as this won’t fold well). Brown, yellow, or white is a good base-colour for a dog.
  2. Fold the paper in half diagonally and then open out.
  3. Fold diagonally in the opposite direction; keeping the fold closed, lay the paper on the table with the tip of the triangle facing downwards. This will be the dog’s mouth.
  4. Fold each of the top two corners of the triangle half way down towards the outside to create ears.
  5. From the point of the dog’s mouth, lift up the top sheet of paper, and fold it up a small amount horizontally.
  6. Roll the same fold up horizontally and smooth down for a second time. This is the dog’s nose.
  7. Use a pen, crayon, or other materials to add eyes, a button nose and a tongue (in the dog’s open mouth).
