These instructions are oddly specific. That is because they were written for a task analysis assignment for a special education class. They are very specific, but that was done on purpose.

## Step 1:

Get out origami paper.

## Step 2:

Choose which colour you would like to fold your sail boat out of.

## Step 3:

Pick just one piece of Origami paper.

## Step 4:

Every time you make a fold, be sure to make a solid crease by holding it against the table and running your finger along it firmly.

## Step 5:

Hold paper gently in both hands in front of you, coloured side you.

## Step 6:

Being careful to line up the corners, fold the paper in half diagonally to form a triangle, color side in. This is “fold A.” Remember to make solid creases in your paper!
The white side of the paper should be facing out.

## Step 7:

Set paper on the table with the largest angle pointing up. (Like a mountain)

## Step 9:

Locate the right edge of the top layer.

## Step 10:

Being careful to line up corners, fold the paper so that they right edge lines up with the bottom edge. This is “Fold B.”

## Step 11:

Flip the paper to the other side.

## Step 12:

Turn paper so large point is on top.

## Step 14:

Being careful to make sure the corners line up, use your left hand to fold the left edge to the bottom edge. This is “Fold C”

## Step 15:

Unfold only “fold A”. Fold B and C should remain folded.

## Step 16:

Hold the paper in front of you with the skinner angle pointed down. The flaps should be in the back and no white should be visible

## Step 17:

Fold the bottom corner to the top corner. You should now have a pentagon!

## Step 18:

Flip paper over to reverse side.

## Step 19:

There are two long sides and two short sides, point to them.

## Step 20:

There is a vertical center crease. Find that also.

## Step 21:

On the right, fold the short side so that it lines up with the center crease.

## Step 22:

One the left, do the same thing, fold the short side so it line up with the center crease.

We now have a thinner pentagon!

## Step 23:

With your right hand grab the top triangle, but only the top most layer.

## Step 24:

Pull back the top layer till it is stopped by another fold.

## Step 25:

Form a crease there.

## Step 26:

Undo that fold slightly so that your new sail sticks up from the body of the boat at a right angle.

## Step 27:

Gently curl the front of your boat upwards. The easiest way to do this is to curl it around your index finger. It will look like an elf shoe.

## Step 28:

Set boat on table, front facing away from you

## Step 29:

Gently blow on sail until the boat sails forward and off the desk.

I have never done origami before this is sooooo cool!!!!!
