A great starting origami with only a few steps.
Starting with something simple like a tulip is a great confidence builder. This origami only requires four folds and it is quite lenient on how children fold. So that means even if the corners aren’t quite pointy and the folds are a little off it will still look like a beautiful tulip.
It’s always a good idea to encourage children to attempt to fold accurately, like making sure the two corners are on top of each other. Their efforts to fold accurately will helps them improve and make subsequent folds easier when they try origami with a few more steps. Getting started how to fold a triangle fold explains tricks to fold a triangle easily for children.
This is also a fun origami to repeat with different colours to explore the variety that comes in an origami pack.
When children feel confident they can make ¼ versions by cutting an origami paper into four squares. They fit quite nicely on a greeting card.
