Growing up I always loved origami so I was excited to be able to do it with our children. The only problem is that many origami projects can be fiddly and difficult to follow. Not with this cute and very easy origami dog! Made in a matter of minutes and then extended for some extra crafty fun by adding on eyes and face details this is one cool dog.

You Will Need
- Origami paper (or make your own paper squares)
- Googly eyes
- Glue stick
- Sharpie or another pen
Let’s Get Folding
- Fold the paper in half so the points meet to form a triangle shape.
- Fold in half again and then unfold back to the first triangle you made.
- With the flat side at the top, fold both the left and right points down from the center to make the ears.
- Next, fold the top and bottom points behind.
Finally, decorate your dog. We used googly eyes and drew on a face. You could add a cute pom pom nose or a fun bow or flower on its ear.
