A simple-to-make origami butterfly.

Supplies needed:
  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Markers or crayons
  • A pipe cleaner or curling ribbon for antennae
Start by making a square piece of paper. To start making a square, fold the corner of a piece of paper over.
To finish making the square, cut off the small rectangle, forming a square (which is already folded into a triangle).
Fold the triangle in half.
Open up the fold you just made. Put the triangle on the table with the central fold pointing up (like a tent). Fold one corner over.
Open it up again. Fold the other corner over.
Open it up. You now have a butterfly shape.
Decorate the butterfly.

Attach two antennae made of pipe cleaners or curling ribbon (curled by pulling along a scissors).
