Step 1:

Start with a rectangular sheet of paper.

Step 2:

Fold the top corner down to the opposite edge of the paper. Look at the picture for help.

Step 3:

Fold the other top corner down to the opposite edge. You will create a x shaped fold.

Step 4:

Where the diagonal creases meet in the middle, fold the paper backwards.

Step 5:

Hold the paper at the sides, bring the horizontal fold into the center lines. Let the creases do most of the work. Look at the image for clarification.

Step 6:

Fold the uppermost triangles up to the top point. This will create the frog’s front legs.

Step 7:

Fold the left side in to the center. Do the same with the right hand side.

Step 8:

Fold the bottom upwards so the end sits in the center of the top diamond.

Step 9:

Now fold the same part downwards, in half. Creating a Z like in the photo.

Step 10:

Your frog is finished! Add some eyes and a nose to bring him to life. Be Creative!

Step 11:

To make him jump, press down on his back as shown in the picture

    Cool! i would suggest making the frog with a smaller piece of paper. It will jump better, at least thats my guess. I made it, but don't have photos.
