  • Step 1

    Before you begin making this boat you will need to turn an A4 piece of paper into a square. To do so, fold the paper horizontally so the short end lines up with the long side.

  • Step 2

    Trim the excess A4 paper. You now have a square!

  • Step 3

    Fold the paper horizontally again in the other direction.

  • Step 4

    Open up that fold so you have a larger triangle shape again.

  • Step 5

    Fold the paper down from the tip of the triangle as shown.

  • Step 6

    Open up your last fold. You should have two crease lines in your large triangle shape.

  • Step 7

    Open up your piece of paper completely.

  • Step 8

    Flip the paper over and fold up the bottom lip of the paper towards the centre.

  • Step 9

    Continue folding the whole piece of paper in half with the bottom lip of the paper folding out in a different direction.

  • Step 10

    Fold the paper completely flat. You should now start to see a boat shape forming.

  • Step 11

    Sit your boat up and check that it looks like the one we picture.

  • Step 12

    Use paper and markers to decorate your boat and add more colour.
