Team StoryWeavers|May 19, 2023, 13:25 IST| 1

Hello There!

Did you know that The art of folding a sheet of paper into something creative is a part of origami art? I am Todd, the in-house DIY expert. I am excited to make some paper boats that I can float in the nearby pond with Jax and Jane. Would you like to make one too? Here’s how you can get started.

Things needed

Coloured or plain papers (square shaped)

Paints (optional)

Old toothbrush (optional)


  1. Take a square-shaped paper
  2. Fold it in half
  3. Fold it once more till you have a small square
  4. Take three parts of the folded paper square and fold diagonally
  5. Fold the last part on the other side diagonally
  6. Once all the folds are completed, open the square and flatten it out in the opposite direction
  7. Then, open the boat by separating the top ends of the folded triangle
  8. Press the folded lines for the boat to hold its shape and set sail

Pro-tip: You can use the toothbrush to spray paint on these boats to make them more colourful and fun!
