Origami Triceratops!

If you’ve been a follower of mine for a few years, you’ll know that my eldest son Karl is into Origami BIG time!

He’s moved past the basic Cranes and constructs all sorts of flying dragons and animals.  On Friday his teacher asked him to make her a Triceratops.  He doesn’t get a lot of Japanese Origami Paper, but instead uses my Designer Series Paper, which he complains about as it’s a bit thick to get good folds.

I told him to try out the Newsprint DSP as it’s thinner than our regular DSP.


Here is Karl’s effort.

Of course he had to make another!

Karl is so great at Origami, I’ve even had him teach my Club ladies in the past with different types of baskets. In fact, if you’d like to see him action, check out THIS POST where he makes a cute box that requires no cutting or adhesive.   I think he was about 7 in this video, and it’s funny to hear his little voice again :)  Too cute!

If you’re dropping by, I’m sure he’d love a little comment love 🙂

  2. Tell Karl that his tricerotops is amazing! I would love to have the instructions, if you can put a link on your blog it would be great. The paper looks good too.
