Emergency 5 Fold Origami Yoda




(This account is under parental supervision)
I read the book A CASE OF ORIGAMI YODA and it had instructions  on how to make an origami Yoda (2nd picture). It also had instructions for an  emergency 5 fold origami Yoda and here they are
you will need:
  • paper (size not specified)
  • pen
I would have used green paper but I couldn't find any at Instructables HQ and also, if it's an emergency, then I don't think you would just happen to have green paper in your pocket.

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

Step 1: Starting

Position the paper landscape.

Fold the paper into thirds.

Make sure that you crease the paper sharply or your Yoda will deform.

Step 2: The Ears

Fold corners outwards - these will make the ears.

Try to make them as even as possible, but if you don't quite get them straight,  don't try refolding them because the extra folds can ruin the shape (plus I think a crooked ear makes him look cute).

Step 3: The Head

Fold down the top over up to the tips of the ears.

Mmake sure you make the crease along the top of his face very sharp, otherwise he will always be looking up.

Step 4: The Face

Draw a face on your Yoda.

Draw it how you like - I kept it simple because when you need one in an emergency you dont have time to make it complex.

    Here's my wonky Yoda! I didn't think enough about making his face Yoda-like… Maybe he's surprised?

    Thanks for the instructions!
