How to Make Origami Boats

| More

Today I’m going to show you how to make Origami Boats.  When made with waterproof paper like waxed paper or cellophane these Origami Boats will actually float.  Use them in the bathtub or in a puddle outside.  Not only is this craft fun to make, but it is equally fun to play with the Origami Boat once made.  You can even add toothpicks to the boat to give the illusion that the boat has oars.  So, grab the materials needed for this craft and let’s get started.
