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.
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.
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!
With your right hand grab the top triangle, but only the top most layer.
Pull back the top layer till it is stopped by another fold.
Form a crease there.
Undo that fold slightly so that your new sail sticks up from the body of the boat at a right angle.
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.
Set boat on table, front facing away from you
Gently blow on sail until the boat sails forward and off the desk.
