Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materails Required

Materails Required

1) Chart paper (Not so thick i bought a color char paper)

2) Flat cardboard or Corrugated box (for platform to walk it must not be slippery floor)

Tools Required

1) Scale.

2) Pencil

3) Scissors

Step 2: Dimensions

As per diagram take the Dimensions. we just need a 15cm X 4.5cm paper. Draw the lines as per the pattern.

Step 3: Cut the Paper

As per the drawing cut the dotted lines. Cut carefully the 0.3cm in the four legs. If its gone high then the animal fall down while walk.

Step 4: Fold to Got Animal

Fold the legs in one side and the head and tail to the opposite side. Role the tail with pencil and fold the head for face. Now the Animal complete


Legs want to be free so that the animal walk if the paper is hard fold front and back 5 to 6 times and make it free in the folding area.

Step 5: Make the Platform

At first i cant able to calculate the degree which it correctly walk . So I take a 45 cm for platform and 10 cm for height so the angle it form is 13 degree. So with the adjustment arrangement in the bottom of the platform i check at which degree the animal smooth and found 10 degree is correct.


The plat form must be 10 degree slanting. So for 45cm platform the height must be 7.8cm.

Step 6: Make It Walk

Now place the animal on the top of the platform and you enjoy it walks down step by step. This is the very fun and easy activity for kids. Once again very very thanks for the person who design it and posted it in Pinterest.

Lot more to enjoy...............Don't forgot to comment and encourage me friends.

Kind da complicated

My kids enjoy it. My daughter drew and cut and my son prepared the platform and "launched" it! Thanks a lot for this project

Great instructable! thanks! Why not make it 3 squares? I understand the weight of the paper is important, but I guess there is a variety of parameters that work? That would make the design easier to remember.

This is delightful; I'm amazed at how well it works given how simple it is to make! Preschoolers might need a bit of help, but I bet they'd think it's magic!
