Origami is a great activity to do with kids! It helps teach them about shapes and symmetry, and it’s also a lot of fun. This paper puppet dog is perfect for kids who love animals! It’s easy to make and only requires a few materials. Plus, it’s a great way to teach kids about cooperation and working together. This step-by-step puppet dog tutorial is rather simple but it is perhaps a bit more of a challenge compared with my latest origami ideas. It is on the same level as the spider tutorial.

Now let’s get started with the paper dog puppet
Step 1: Make sure you take a squire paper.
Step 2: Fold the right edge of the paper over to the left.
Step 3: Unfold.
Step 4: Fold the top edge of the paper down to the bottom edge.
Step 5: Fold the right edge to align with the central vertical crease that you created in the previous step.
Step 6: Fold the left edge to meet the central crease.
Step 7: Fold the top-left point of the right section diagonally down to the right.
Step 8: Unfold the previous step and flatten the right section, using the diagonal crease to create a house shape.
Step 9: Repeat the same process on the left side.
Step 10: Flip the paper over to the other side.
Step 11: Fold the right & left edge to the middle.
Step 12: Fold the top layer of the bottom right point diagonally up to the left.
Step 13: Fold the top layer of the bottom section diagonally up, creating a crease that runs from the bottom left corner up to the top right corner of the lower section.
Step 14: Fold the front layer up to the top. This has created an ear.
Step 15: Flip the model over.
Step 16: Repeat the same process on this side, but this time it’s the left side.
Step 17: Fold the bottom left point diagonal up.
Step 18: Fold the bottom section up to create the other ear.
Step 19: Rotate the model.
Step 20: Pull the model open from behind and squash the mouth inwards.
