Easy Origami Ninja Star Craft Tutorial For Kids To Play
- Origami Papers
Step 1: Taking A Sheet Of Paper
Take a sheet of paper of the size 7.5×7.5. Now, fold the sheet in half. Unfold it to get a crease as shown.
Step 2: Making A Fold At The Corner
Now that we have the crease we need on the sheet, fold one of the corners up to the center of the middle crease and press it with your fingers so that it does not unfold.
Step 3: Making Another Fold
Now, repeat the above step, and fold the other corner as shown in the image.
Step 4: Folding The Paper In Half
Now, fold the paper in half to get a four-sided figure as shown. Keep the longer edge at the bottom and fold the right corner into a triangle shape as shown. Unfold the triangle to get a slanting crease as shown.
Step 5: Making a Parallelogram
Push the paper inwards along the triangle crease made earlier, making a shape of a parallelogram. Congratulations, you have learned to make a new shape!
Step 6: Making Eight Parallelograms
The count of these shapes you make depends on how big you want the star to be. If you want a smaller one, make three to four, if you want a bigger one like ours, you can make seven to eight of them.
Step 7: Fitting The Parallelograms Together
The next step is to connect these shapes like a link or a chain. You can simply do that by adjusting the shapes into the open sides of the folded parallelogram and sticking the pieces into each other.
Step 8: Sealing The Ends
To seal the pieces completely, fold the excess pointed corner(as shown in the picture above), of the first parallelogram shape to the flat end of the other. This will connect the pieces properly and give them a good and presentable shape.
Step 9: Making A Circular Shape
Connect all the pieces in a similar fashion making a circular shape with the parallelograms. Look at your genius, making a circle out of parallelograms. Good job!
Hurray! Playful Ninja Star Is Ready!
Finally, to unveil the magic, you just need to push the two opposite links together to unleash the ninja star making its way from arrows to parallelograms to circles and finally to the celestial star itself.
So, in this tutorial, we didn’t only learn to make a complete piece of art but also different shapes that can help you create more, diverse objects of craft. Try using these shapes in making origami or you can use your own ideas on them to make unique art. And don’t forget to play with the star you made today and show it to your entire family and friends. Have fun and keep perfecting these techniques by practicing more.
