Simple origami:

In this, you will fold a piece of paper into a shape. There are many different shapes that you can fold, including animals, flowers, and airplanes. Here are some instructions on how to make a simple origami frog:

Fold the paper in half diagonally. Unfold the paper and then fold it in half again. Turn the paper so that the folded edge is facing downward. Fold the bottom corner up to meet the top edge of the paper (create a triangle). Fold the triangle down to create a smaller triangle. Turn the small triangle over so that it is facing upward. Make sure that all of your folds are sharp and crisp! Now you have created a frog!

Modular origami:

In modular origami, you will create a model by combining multiple simple origami shapes. This type of origami is often used to create large and complex models. Here are some instructions on how to make a modular origami star:

Start with a square piece of paper. Fold the paper in half diagonally. Unfold the paper and then fold it in half again. Turn the paper so that the folded edge is facing downward. Fold the bottom corner up to meet the top edge of the paper (create a triangle). Fold the triangle down to create a smaller triangle. Turn the small triangle over so that it is facing upward. Make sure that all of your folds are sharp and crisp! Now you have created the first layer of your star. Repeat the steps above to create five more layers. Connect the six layers by folding the bottom tips of each layer up towards the center of the star (make sure that all of your folds are sharp and crisp!). Now you have a modular origami star!

Wet-folding origami:

In wet-folding origami, you will fold a piece of paper into a shape while it is still wet. This type of origami often results in very beautiful and delicate models. Here are some instructions on how to make a simple wet-folded rose:

Start with a square piece of paper. Fold the paper in half diagonally. Unfold the paper and then fold it in half again. Turn the paper so that the folded edge is facing downward. Fold the bottom corner up to meet the top edge of the paper (create a triangle). Fold the triangle down to create a smaller triangle. Turn the small triangle over so that it is facing upward. Make sure that all of your folds are sharp and crisp! Now you have created the first layer of your rose. Repeat the steps above to create five more layers. Connect the six layers by folding the bottom tips of each layer up towards the center of the star (make sure that all of your folds are sharp and crisp!). Now you have a wet-folded origami rose!
