Give yourself a challenge! Sit your little one down, keep this post handy and follow the steps. As they say, take it step-by-step and it will work out just fine. Have the little one press down the creases.
Thank you Vivaan Singh, creator of this tutorial, for your absolute brilliance. You are a star!
1: Start with a square. Fold it diagonally to make a crease.
2: Fold the corners inward to align edges along crease. Then flip it.
3: Fold paper so that the narrow edge meets the broader one.
4: Flip it again. Pull the pocket holding the edge and fold back as shown.
5: Hold the longer edges, pull apart and flatten it.
6: See the white line in the centre? Fold along so that both sides have small triangular flaps on either side.
7: Fold the right tip over to make a crease. Hold up and open from top to form a diamond. Hold the tip and gently push it up, folding as the tip goes up. This is called the ‘inside reverse fold’.
8: Fold down the tiny flaps and fold up the other tip.
9: Open the fold and using the crease make an inside reverse fold on the other edge too. Fold out the tiny triangles at base.
10: fold and open the tip as shown to form a crease line and then make an inside reverse fold.
11: Tricky part! Fold the tip again, open and make an outside reverse fold. I personally find that doing another inside reverse fold works just as well!
12: Now the head part: fold tip down, make crease and then inside reverse fold. In the last picture: fold the tip back up and open again for crease.
13: Do another inside reverse and then repeat it to form the beak.
14: Almost there … tail and head are ready! For the feet, fold in the tiny flaps and fold out from the bottom to form the feet.
KUKAROO KUROO! Time to give yourself a treat!
