On this page you will find links to video instructions to learn easy origami, suitable for children and those people with little or no experience folding paper. Origami figures include:
Birds • Boat • Salt cellar • Windmill • Heart • Frog • Penguin • Boxes • Puppet
The videos here show how to make several easy origami figures perfect for the beginning level paper folder. Although the videos are narrated in English with Spanish subtitles, origami is a universal language spoken through the movement of the hands, and the videos can be understood by anyone anywhere.
Many people learn origami on their own following video or book instruction. Each person has different needs and different learning pace and style. I suggest you start by following videos for these simpler figures. Even if you are not too attracted by the model in itself the process will still be very rewarding and you will learn a lot from the experience.
Once you fold the figures suggested here, try with models listed here.
