Follow the steps below to make this Origami paper Boat.
If you’ve always wanted play with boats in the tub, but your parents wouldn’t get one for you, don’t worry. I will show you how to make an origami boat out of paper, and yes it floats…for a little bit, but it’s still fun nonetheless. However, I heard that if you color the bottom of the boat with crayon, then it will float longer. Just be careful not to splash too much water on it!
The origami boat is actually very simple to make. All you need is a rectangular piece of paper, so any 8.5×11 copy or lined paper will do. Then follow the instructions and pictures carefully and you’ll be able to make your own origami boat that floats.
Step 1: Start with an 8.5×11 sheet of rectangular paper.
Step 2: Fold the paper in half left to right, then unfold.
Step 3: Fold in half again, this time folding top to bottom.
Step 4: Fold the upper left and right corners to the middle.
Step 5: Fold the bottom strip up.
Step 6: Do the same to the strip on the other side.
Step 7: Open up the paper all the way to collapse it into a diamond shaped figure.
Step 8: Fold the bottom corner up to the top corner.
Step 9: Turn the figure over.
Step 10: Also fold this side’s bottom corner to the top corner.
Step 11: Like before, open the paper all the way until it collapses into a diamond shaped figure.
Step 12: Grab the top two corners and gently pull it apart, then flatten well.
Step 13: Open the sides of the boat, then bring it with you when you need to take a bath.
