Origami boats are a fun and easy way to get started in the art of origami. They can be made from a variety of materials, including paper, plastic, or cloth. In this tutorial, I will be using my usual origami paper, starting with a 6″ X 6″ (15 cm X 15 cm) square piece. There are lots of different types of boats you can make out of paper.
The absolute easiest is the “Square boat”; you could look at “torpedo boat” for a more advanced design. In this tutorial, I decided to make a sailing boat, the design remains easy, but the outcome is quite exciting, specifically for kids.
