Instructions: To make some origami frogs start with a green piece of origami paper and create a square base. You then insert your finger in one pocket of the square base. Move it around to the front, flatten it, then crease it. This is known as a squash fold. Do the squash fold three more times for the other pockets. Try to do this until your jungle themed origami crafts forms a diamond shape. The next move is to fold and unfold the corners to create crease-marks.

The following step in making your frogs is to fold petals four times on the faces of the diamond to make a base of your origami frogs. Then fold the base down at the centre line and then fold the lower edges of one layer into the centre line. Fold the first edge to the second edge. Do this three more times for the remaining sides.

Now it’s time to make frogs out of these tadpoles! Pre-crease the leg first then make use of a reverse fold to create the two front legs of your jungle-inspired crafts. Use the reverse folds again to stretch out the back legs. Finally, use the reverse folds again two times on the back and front pairs of legs. Inflate the bodies and your jungle themed origami frogs are ready to take their first leap!
