The Origami Jumping Frog is really easy to make... To make the frog jump to its best potential, use paper that's a bit thicker. You will need to use rectangular paper for this model
1. Start with a rectangular sheet of paper, white side up.
Fold it in half, and open out again
|2. fold both top corners to the opposite edge of the paper. Your creases should look like this.||3. Where the diagonal creases meet in the middle, fold the paper backwards, crease well and open.|
|4. Hold the paper at the sides, bring these points down to the centre line, then flatten. The creases should do most of the work here!||5. Fold the uppermost triangles up to the top point.|
|6. Fold sides in to the centre line.||7. Fold bottom of model upwards so the end sits in the centre of the top diamond.|
|8. Now fold the same part downwards, in half.|
Turn over, your Jumping Frog is finished!
To make him jump, press down on his back as shown.
