It’s time to roll up your sleeves, flex your fingers, and prepare to delve into making origami models. This section start easy and become more difficult, so I suggest you fold all models (although
your enthusiasm is commendable). This section are teeming with animals, birds, fish, aoirplanes, flowers, insects and other models. You can make bowls, vases, and hats. You’ll also find stars,
flowers, tessellations, and geometric models. I hope you thoroughly enjoy making the models in this part. Interested in learning origami, but worried that it's all to complex to understand? This
collection of easy origami Instructables are the perfect introduction to the world of origami. Easy to follow steps, pictures and videos will have you on your way to a thousand paper cranes in no
time. The easy origami tutorials listed here can be completed in a a few steps steps. If you are ready for more challenging models, go to the model that you like. If you haven't done origami much, it
can get a bit confusing sometimes! It's best to start with these simpler models below. If you are finding the diagrams difficult, the other thing you could try is watching the origami videos - that
will help you get a feel for origami before trying to the read the diagrams. Have fun! Now keep in mind that part of the magic of origami, and what makes it so good for the mind, is the challenge of having to transform just a sheet of paper and a diagram
into a three dimensional model. And if you have not seen many of these diagrams before, they may take some time to get used to. I've tried to make the instructions on these page as straight forward
as possible... but if you don't understand right away, don't head for the rubbish bin! Give it time... keep looking at the instructions, and give it another go. And don't forget to read the
instructions as well as looking at the diagram picture: both contain important information. It's best to have plenty of paper; so you can start afresh if your paper gets too many creases on it that
aren't right! And make sure you crease each fold really well, using the side of your thumbnail, or the handle of a pair of scissors. This makes a much neater model in the end, and makes later folds
easier to do.
For a easy search of the models, we divide the site into the following categories: A ton of super awesome origami for kids projects! You can do these with any kind of paper although I really, really
recommend you use origami paper and you can even get a patterned origami paper which is beyond adorable! Can’t wait to start folding? Neither can I – so let’s jump right into the water ;).
Origami-Kids is a web site specifically for plane and boat lovers and is organised neatly to display over 50 models of gliders, hunters, vortexes, tumbling
planes and boats. Each paper model is pictured in detail, along with instructions on how to make them fly. The categories mentioned above are according to the type of planes — for e.g., hunters would
fly fast whereas gliders would cover long distance by staying afloat in the air for longer. Select an airplane to view its folding instructions which appear as animation. The instructions are
displayed with a starting paper on the left, folds or creases to be made are animated in the middle, and the resultant shape is presented on the right. At the bottom, there are buttons to for 'Next'
and 'Back' to move to required steps. While creating these planes with standard letter or A4 sized pages (used for printouts and photocopies), also read user comments on how they found the planes.
One of the interesting sections present here is 'Flight Simulators'. These are Flash games allowing paper plane flights in different conditions such as height, speed and angle, etc. Next section
worth taking a look at is 'Origami 3D' with models such as popcorn cup, bang (noise creator), turtle, duck and bat, etc. To further improvise these origami models, coloured papers and markers can be
used as well.
