Boat folding patterns for beginners
A classic paper boat using the origami technique – the simplest option – is folded according to the following pattern:
- A rectangular sheet located vertically is folded in half.
- The resulting blank is placed with the fold point up, and both upper corners are bent to an imaginary center line vertically, so that a narrow unused strip remains at the bottom.
- The bottom strip of the top layer of the workpiece is bent upward, then the rectangle is turned over to the other side and the second strip is bent.
- Using corner bends, the folded strips are fixed in one position.
- Then the workpiece is opened from the inside and folded into a square by placing its parts on top of each other so that the initial fold becomes the diagonal of the resulting square. After folding, the corners straighten.
- Now the top sheet of the resulting square piece, lying in the diamond position, is bent diagonally to match the opposite corners.
- The workpiece is turned over to the other side, then the same action is done. At this stage, the square turns into an isosceles triangle.
- Next, the triangular blank is opened from the inside by combining opposite corners and again turns into a square.
- The ship unfolds from a square blank – for this, the upper corners are pulled in opposite directions at the same time.
- The middle straightens out, and a simple paper boat can be launched into a pond.
There is another option for folding a boat for beginners, it is the simplest, and as a result of five minutes of work you get a yacht:
- On a square sheet of paper of any color, you need to fold it horizontally diagonally.
- Now a vertical valley fold is performed.
- An imaginary line is drawn in the lower triangle, as shown in the diagram, along which the fold occurs.
- The bent part of the triangle is bent, returning to its original position. Once the folding technique is mastered, steps 3 and 4 can be simplified into one by simply folding the desired part of the triangle.
- Now, along the marked lines, you should make “valley” bends, carefully straightening the right angle, which is located below the marking.
- Using glue, the 2 parts of the yacht are connected to each other, then the bottom and hull are carefully straightened so that the product becomes stable.
If you complicate the previous diagram a little, you might end up with an ocean liner:
- On a square sheet of paper of any color, you need to make 2 folds diagonally, thus outlining 4 triangles.
- Then you need to bend the upper corner of the square blank, arranged in a diamond shape, towards the center.
- Now the same corner is bent again, only in the opposite direction.
- And once again the corner, only this time smaller in volume, needs to be folded back towards itself. When the technique of folding the boat is mastered, steps 2-4 are simplified into one step, folding occurs with a triple zipper.
- Next, the left side of the workpiece is folded in such a way as to cover the right side.
- Now you need to mark an imaginary line, as shown in the diagram, for folding the lower parts of the workpiece into a “mountain”. Then very carefully straighten and bend the corner located below the line. After this, the parts of the workpiece indicated in the diagram need to be bent along the intended line “mountainwise”.
- The bent corner is carefully smoothed out, and the workpiece is turned in the desired direction.

Master class “Two-pipe boat” using the origami technique
In classes on cognitive development, the children of the preparatory group and I “travel” a lot
across countries and continents, seas and oceans. And of course, at the same time “we use”
different types of transport. Very often we have to build ships and steamships
, since water barriers in the form of seas arise on our way. We recently visited the resort cities of the Krasnodar Territory, and since the cities are located on the Black Sea coast, we needed water transport for excursions. I invited the children to try themselves in the art of origami and make a two-pipe boat
– the art of folding paper figures without scissors or glue. Origami is a Japanese word
, and it is translated as “folded paper”
. It was the Japanese who were the first to make different figures out of paper.
Fine motor skills develop, fingers are trained, and children’s speech develops. Finger training prepares the hand for writing. The movement of the hand and fingers becomes precise and coordinated.
« Two-pipe boat

• Introduce children to methods of transforming a square, develop spatial orientation
• Develop the ability to act with verbal instructions from the teacher
• Develop fine motor skills
• Cultivate hard work, the ability to finish a job
: Square shaped colored paper.
1. Find the middle of the square, mark it with a simple pencil and fold the square twice diagonally.
2. Fold all corners towards the center.
3. Turn the new square with its back side facing you and bend the corners to the middle again.
4. Repeat this action 2 more times.
5. Now we take out the pipes and stern.
6. Our boat is ready to sail

4. Turn over.
5. Sides to midline.
6. Raise the sail at a right angle.
7. Screw the bow of the ship onto a pencil.
8. We made this boat from single-sided paper. The sail turned out white.
9. Decorate the boat, draw a funny boat.
The craft is very easy to make. Children
they really love making this boat.
Sometimes they make a whole flotilla. And then they play… If you blow on the sail from behind the boat, it will float on the waves.
“A boat is running on the waves,
Today here, and tomorrow there.
And let it be made of paper,
He has the same amount of courage,
Like huge ships” A. A. Karelin.

For hands and for mind
And the perception of the world –
Fantasies are subject to
Paper sheets –
For home and as a gift
And just for the game.
But, the main wealth,
What, creating beauty,
A simple piece of paper will help
Art origami – a mystery
, and it attracts every child with incredible transformations. It’s not even a trick, it’s a miracle! In a piece of paper
many images are hidden. In the hands of a child paper comes to life
. How much joy, how much delight! Children experience feelings of emotional comfort, a sense of the joy of childhood, and an incomparable feeling of satisfaction from handmade crafts. Such a toy is dear to the heart, people talk to it, play with it, and keep it carefully. Paper
toys are making more and more friends. This art has everything that would draw a child to climb to the very top of the ladder of creativity and make this climb excitingly interesting.
Today, many people all over the world are interested in art « origami
, so I, along with the children, happily immersed myself in his magical world.
For my master class, I chose a steamboat with two pipes using the classic origami technique
, in which the craft is made from a square sheet of paper without glue and scissors
Sea, seagulls, ships
They hear my whistle in the distance.
The port remained astern,
The way home will be long.
Proudly I sail forward!

, colored pencils, felt-tip pens
Model execution sequence
To complete this model of a steamer
take a square sheet of paper
. I used white paper
, for colorfulness steamers
and their variety it is necessary to use colored paper
Fold a square sheet of paper diagonally
, ironing the fold line well. Then we fold the sheet diagonally again to mark its center using the intersection of the diagonals.
Fold the corners of the square to the marked center. Iron the folds well. You will get a square.
Turn the square over with the laid elements facing down and once again fold the corners towards the center.
Once again we turn the resulting square over and again fold its corners towards the center (in total we fold the corners of the squares towards the center three times, turning the part over each time).
Turn the part over again. We bend two of the four corners, forming pipes
. Smooth out the folds.
Pulling the two remaining corners, we unfold them, simultaneously folding the figure in half. Straighten the resulting steamer
Steamboat with two paper pipes is ready
Guys, let’s decorate your ships with stars
, we will draw portholes on the body and color them with colored pencils. Look what beautiful steamers you have made
! Just like the real thing! Let’s send them on a great journey across the seas, and we ourselves will wait for their return home! Have a nice trip, ships
My steamship will sail
To distant lands!
The horn buzzes merrily,
And the pipe smokes
The sun is shining high,
The wind is driving the clouds,
The steamer will not catch up

Birthday in a pirate style – a do-it-yourself chest made of cardboard
YO-HO-HO! Do you love pirates?
My son loves them very much and decided to celebrate his fourth birthday in this style.
We spend the summer at the dacha, but since it is not on the seashore, it was decided to transform the site into a small pirate cove!
The morning began with turmoil, while the main pirate was sleeping, work was in full swing: the trampoline was turning into fishing nets, they were looking for a place to moor the ship, hanging flags, pulling the sails, and goodies were placed on the veranda – the hold.
When the entire pirate crew had gathered, they were given pirate accessories (hats, sabers, belts, bandanas)
The team members then went in search of the treasure. They were faced with difficult trials, which the team coped with honor.
After completing the tasks and successfully finding the treasure, the pirate team went to celebrate their victory.
- We started preparing much in advance to purchase everything we needed in Moscow.
- First of all, I started preparing the scenery and, I want to say, it took quite a bit of time. What we had :
- imitation of a pirate ship from a refrigerator box, painted with regular gouache
- Cardboard anchor with gold paint.
- Flag – cardboard primed with black paint, cut out and glued on the Jolly Roger.
- Rope – a thick rope, folded in half and twisted.
- Cardboard steering wheel. The process of its creation
As you can see in the photo there was a large number 4, which was glued for a long time and painfully, fell apart and was re-glued. Secure with skewers, like the ship))
There were a lot of garlands and flags
Large pirate flag ordered from Ali Express here
Garland of ribbons
- The table toppers were printed on a color printer and then carefully cut out and glued to toothpicks and skewers.
- The chest was made of cardboard according to this master class
- And here’s what we got:
- What may be useful: beads, as treasures, plastic or chocolate coins, sabers, muskets, figurines of boats, compass, ropes, nets and everything related to the marine theme.
The competitions were quite simple. In principle, any competition can be played on one topic or another, just add a little imagination.
1. They tested the accuracy of team members by throwing the ball into the basket.
2. Walking across a bridge over a sea infested with sharks – walking on a plank.
3 . Every pirate should be able to bandage wounds – they wrapped their arms, legs, and then what turned out to be toilet paper. This is for us adults, this is an old boring competition from weddings and anniversaries, but the children had a lot of fun, especially getting out of it.
- 4. Quiz, with questions on the pirate theme (what is the name of the skull, what did pirates drink, etc.)
5. Game Storm-Calm. When there is a storm, everyone sits down, when there is calm, they get up. The oldest pirate tried to confuse the crew by showing movements that did not correspond to his words.
6. Game Water-land: a hoop is placed on the ground (a circle is drawn) – an island, inside it is land, outside is water. Participants stand inside the circle, on land, then follow the commands of the leader, who pronounces either “water” or “land”! At the same time, participants leave the circle and then enter again. The presenter constantly confuses the participants by repeating the same command and speeding up the pace.
7. Finding treasure using an old map.
- Below are ideas that may be useful when organizing a holiday (photo from the Internet).
- Regarding the appearance and pirate attributes
- Aqua makeup
- Any scarves can become bandanas
- A pirate hat can easily be made from cardboard
Cardboard saber. You can organize a creative competition, cut out sabers in advance and give them to children to decorate.
- You can also make a pirate hook yourself
- Black tag made of cardboard or fabric and elastic.
- Table setting ideas and cakes
- Photo props
- Printable flags here
- Toppers here
If you don’t have time to make all sorts of pirate gadgets, you can easily buy them in online stores, or, for example, here
In conclusion, I would like to say that you don’t bother too much, like I did))).
Judging by experience, all sorts of little things are not very important for children, they need ambience and fun, and if there are toppers on the table or a garland on the wall, this is more important and noteworthy for adults.
A headband, a stick, if you don’t have a saber, in your hands, and go ahead, conquer the warm southern seas, fight evil sharks and look for treasure. And, of course, a cake with ten candles, or better yet 10 cakes with 1 candle, depending on who you like
After the holiday, the ship, chest and everything else did not go for disposal, but were useful for games))
Origami received a powerful impetus in its development in Japan. As strange as it sounds, this happened because the Japanese are quite religious people. They drew a parallel between the art of origami and the philosophy of Buddhism. In Buddhism, it is customary to observe the beauty of the world around us. Paper crafts, many of which are quite elegant, were perfect for this.
If you translate the name of “paper” art from Japanese, you get “ori” (folded) and “kami” (paper and god – this word has two meanings). So figure it out as best you can.
Japanese aristocrats, connoisseurs of everything elegant, became great experts in origami
Children were taught this business from childhood, no matter who you were – a courtier or a servant – everyone had to be able to fold crafts from paper. For example, an ordinary note could be folded in several different ways, and the recipient, even before reading it, could understand what the mood of the sender was
Later, art gradually began its journey and continued to gain high popularity among ordinary people. Thanks to this, many new and different techniques have emerged. In Japan, this art is passed down only through the female line from generation to generation, and it has already become a tradition.
After the Second World War, origami appeared in America and Europe, where it immediately became popular and found a response in the hearts of people.
What materials are needed to make origami?
To create classic origami, you only need a sheet of paper, and the use of scissors and glue is prohibited. However, with the advent of new schemes and ideas, it was necessary to break these rules.
First of all, of course, the paper itself.
It should bend well. Choose thin, clean, non-creased paper. Based on what the craft will be, be attentive to the color (green – frog, Christmas tree, etc.)
PVA will do. For neatness, use a napkin.
They are necessary for gluing parts. Choose brushes of several sizes. For large and small parts. After completing the work, do not forget to rinse the glue from the brushes so that they can be used comfortably in the future. Dry with the pile facing up.
Colored pencils and markers.
They will be needed for additional decoration of the craft if you need to draw something.
How to make a waterproof paper boat
How to make a ship out of paper so that it does not get wet and does not sink in the water:
- 1st method – tape.
It is necessary to cover the body and bottom of the paper boat with tape, both outside and inside. If during processing with tape it becomes necessary to form seams, they must be made minimally vulnerable. To do this, strips of tape should be placed a few millimeters on top of each other so that water cannot penetrate into the joints between them for as long as possible.
- 2nd method – several layers.
A multi-layer boat will take much longer to get wet than a regular two-layer boat. To make it, you need to take not 1, but 2 sheets of paper, and then fold it according to the diagram. Such a boat will turn out to be denser; more layers will make it heavier, so the bottom should be made very wide.
- 3rd method – wax (paraffin).
It is this product that can protect the paper well from getting wet. It is necessary to light the candle and wait a little while the wick flares up and melts the wax to a liquid state. After this, wax should be dripped onto the boat, immediately spreading it over the hull using your fingers. All areas of a homemade vessel need to be lubricated: both external and internal. Do not use too much wax – it can weigh down the product and make it unstable.
- 4th method – Vaseline oil.
Using a brush, this product should be applied to the bottom and lower part of the boat’s hull, then allow the product to dry a little.
- 5th method – glossy sheets.
A boat made from glossy magazine sheets will last a little longer on the water without harm than one made from plain paper.
- 6th method – PVA glue.
It must be poured into a jar or glass, and then applied to the bottom and body of the paper vessel using a brush, and then allowed to dry completely in a warm place.
How to make a boat from scrap materials | 50 photos of ideas for making boats
What boy doesn’t like to launch boats? Website “Mom can do anything!” I have collected for you 50 ideas with photos on how to make a boat with your own hands from scrap materials.
We all made paper boats as children. These are easy to make, and the material is always at hand. And if you take not just paper, but for example packaging from sheets for a printer, then the ship will last on the water for several hours!
In the modern world, plastic is used everywhere and finding a similar bottle for making a boat is not difficult.
A shampoo bottle is also useful for making a sailboat. Pierce it with a wooden skewer, attach a paper sail and your ship will be unsinkable.
Vegetables can also be considered improvised materials and it is just as easy to make a craft from them.
Cut out the middle of the zucchini, scoop out the flesh, insert a stick and use a piece of paper to make a sail. Add details: cut small windows, make a sailor from carrots and potatoes.
A boat can be not just a craft, but also an option for serving a dish. Surely the children will want to eat this one 🙂
You’ve probably accumulated a lot of Popsicle sticks over the summer. It’s time to make crafts out of them. Wooden sticks will be an excellent building material. Paint them in different colors and start making them.
If you don’t have Popsicle sticks, just go to your nearest park and collect small twigs. Fasten them together with a rope, add a sail and the boat is ready.
It’s autumn and that means it’s time to make boats with sails from leaves. They can be easily attached using a heat gun or a piece of plasticine. Here are some ideas:
Very beautiful and comfortable boats are made from tetra pack packaging. You can easily put your children’s favorite toys in them.
And this is a detailed diagram for making a pirate ship from kefir or milk packaging. It is in English, but generally understandable.
A large cardboard box can easily be turned into a ship for your child to captain.
Using a smaller box, make a sailboat for his toys.
You can turn any unnecessary object that can float on the water into a boat. For example, coconut shells. Place a couple of sheets of paper on a wooden skewer and secure it inside the shell.
You can also make small boats from Kinder Surprise eggs and walnut shells.
Wine corks are an excellent material for making small rafts. They do not sink and swim well, and are also very small and can even fit in a jar.
Egg trays turn into spacious ships. In their recesses you can easily place both Kinder Surprise toys and cute little animals.
Egg trays turn into spacious ships. In their recesses you can easily place both Kinder Surprise toys and cute little animals.
A ship can be made from almost anything, even ice. Pour water into an ice container, insert the sticks and place in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Make two holes in a sheet of paper with a hole punch, take out the boats and put the sheet on a stick, the sailboat is ready.
A few more ideas for making a ship from scrap materials:
How I make my ships
Hello masters and craftswomen. I created this blog at the request of the girls, so I called it mini MK, most likely these are some explanations of the sizes, and I want to talk about some details of the process of making ships and sails.
Yes, there is a lot of MK on the Internet and I have already written to the girls about this before (maybe someone will say that there is nothing new here…), but they ask questions and it is not difficult for me to share the answers with you.
Using this template, I cut out a shape from polystyrene foam, before the ships were much “potbellier” (which didn’t make me very happy) – they turned out to be “puffy” because all my ships, or rather, had a present hidden inside ( you know which one))))). Over time, I changed the template and made it a little narrower.
I hope you can figure out the sizes
This is what the bottom of the ship looks like. I pick out the hole with a knife, then with a joint or a cutter (these are small knives for wood carving).
Of course this work is the most dreary………
Height – 8 cm.
In the photo you can see 2 parts 4 cm thick glued together, then I cut out the top part-lid using the template. Then I bring the workpiece to the desired shape, I showed with a dotted line that you can cut the foam at this angle, but just don’t overdo it, because. you can make a hole))) (this is if you make a ship with “stuffing” as in my case….
Then we sand with a coarse sandpaper (I do this over the bathtub, I collect large waste and throw it away, and I simply wash off the small waste with water, and there is practically no dust), then I level it with a fine sandpaper. The ship takes on a symmetrical shape and becomes even.
I’ll say right away that the photos will be from different manufacturing processes of my ships. This is an example of what glued blanks look like, which we will further bring to mind….
The height of the base of the ship is 12cm.
I’m giving you templates for sails, lately I’ve been making exactly this shape, but you can also make rectangular ones (shown with a dotted line), I indicated the dimensions, maybe someone will find it useful
I make sails from both mesh and organza, and I always glue the edges on both sides, they hold their shape and the sails turn out neat. Thanks to Irina Tsibun for the tips in her MK, I iron the sails through damp gauze, then the glue sticks well to the materials (just don’t overexpose)
Using a soldering iron (purchased at a fixed price), we burn holes – they turn out smooth, neat and the right size.
For masts I use wooden skewers, or supports for plants (the same fixed price has them) or a more expensive option – whips for extending fishing rods (in fishing stores). If the sticks are short for the mast, you can extend them and wrap them with strips of corrugated paper.
I cover my ships with corrugated paper, metallized corrugated paper, bamboo napkins – thanks to Lenochka Konopleva for the idea with bamboo napkins
I use this kind of braid, the narrow one holds the masts, I decorate the details of the ship with the middle ones, and I cover the joints with the wider ones, thereby hiding all the defects
example of how I decorate a compartment for a gift
liked using lace
and this option
- well, this is just part of the decor with which I decorate ships.
Here you can give free rein to your imagination))))))))
- You can make a steering wheel from wire, or from chocolate. medals, and I also used souvenir medals, they also look interesting
I’ll show you how to attach the candies.
came to the conclusion that candy should be made in loop holders, because… when they want to eat the candy, an ugly hole will form in its place, and no matter what it is, these places will be closed by such loops (I think it looks much more aesthetically pleasing than a damaged ship)
and this option
This is how I make loops: I wrap the candy with ribbon so that the candy can be easily pulled out; I glue the ribbon ONLY to each other, I don’t glue it to the candy. Then I glue the loop to the base of the ship, that’s all
The sails in 1 photo are glued together only at the corners, and they can be fixed in the place where the masts pass through the sails. You can also fix them by wrapping a narrow braid under each sail. I glue the sails together for 2 photos, then fix them with skewers
We offer you the most common paper boat design. It is these sharp-nosed beauties that boldly plow the expanses of spring puddles and streams. Making them is a matter of a couple of minutes. And the pleasure of watching your own creation swim will delight not only the child.
- Fold the sheet in half along the wide side. Bend it again along the wide side to mark the middle.
- Fold the top corners towards the middle of the sheet. Achieve their complete combination.
- The lower edges of the sheet were left free. Lift them up, each on his own side. Iron the folds.
- Fold the corners of the strips to form a triangle.
- As a result of these manipulations, you should end up with a triangular pocket. Stick your hand into it and open it.
- Grab the middle of the base of the triangle and gently pull in different directions. The corners of the structure will align to form a square.
- The resulting square is two-layered. Bend each of its parts diagonally to the bottom corner of the square. Again you get a triangle with a pocket inside.
- Open the resulting pocket as in step 6. You should have a multi-layered square.
- Take it by the upper corners and move them in opposite directions – the boat opens.
Following this step-by-step algorithm, even a schoolchild can assemble an origami boat correctly.
If you take a piece of scrap or colored paper for a craft, your creation will turn out especially bright and beautiful. Or you can make it just white and entrust a small designer to turn an ordinary ship into a masterpiece.
Paper boat with sail
Every child’s dream, a floating craft, and even with a sail. Surely such ships sail along the stream much faster. Let’s clarify first! That there can be many such options, and we will look at several of them. Well, what can we try?
Of course, for work we will need a white sheet of A4 size. And then, right along the dotted lines, we begin to collect our future beauty
- Fold the prepared sheet exactly in half, and carefully run your finger along the seam as shown in Fig. 1.
- We unbend our sheet again, and bend the two halves from different sides to the seam formed in the middle (Fig. 2.
- We fold the folded part on two more sides, creating a certain envelope shape, draw well along the line in Fig. 3.
- We reverse the action by straightening the upper edges of Fig. 4.
- Expand the lower part in the form of a triangle, Fig. 5.
- Again, smooth out figure 6 with your finger.
- Repeat similarly with the top edge of Fig. 7.
- Let’s look at Fig. 8 to see if it worked out for you, if not, then go back and repeat the previous steps, raise the corners of the upper part.
- We perform the following according to Fig. 9, folding as shown in the figure directly along the dotted lines.
- There is very little left, in Fig. 10 you can see how our sailboat is placed, the finished boat in Fig. 11 can be seen from different sides.
The finished boat can be colored with felt-tip pens or paints, made it brighter, and perhaps even indicated the model.
I suggest trying a simpler option and the sailboat is not as big as the previous one, but thanks to colored paper you can make it very original. And each boat made using this technique will be individual, beautiful in its own way.
The scheme for creating such a boat is very simple, and many of you probably remembered it when you started making it.
The finished work can be slightly transformed. We will need a skewer and some other bright color of paper. We cut out a sail from it, pierce it on both sides with a skewer and stick the same tip of the skewer into the top of our boat, this is how it looks in the picture.
So that the tip of the tree is not conspicuous, we cut out a small flag and attach it to the very top with glue. You can do similar work in a more interesting design if you suddenly don’t have colored paper at home.
And if large stocks of newspapers have accumulated in the house, then we quickly put them to use. It will turn out no worse, the main thing is to choose a thicker newspaper.
In the next section we will look at another very interesting topic of creating beautiful boats.
To create a bait boat, you need to follow the instructions below:
- Draw a drawing of a homemade boat on thick paper.
- Cut the sketch along the cut line and bend along the fold lines.
- Glue the workpiece, cutting off all excess from the sides.
- To increase the hardness of the paper, fill the inside of the product with clay or plasticine mass.
- Turn the body over and measure out the required amount of fiberglass.
- Place the fiberglass fabric on the paper blank, apply epoxy resin to it and leave to dry. You need to coat the entire fabric.
- Upon completion of drying, you need to check the thickness of the body and, if necessary, apply another layer of fiberglass and epoxy.
- Remove all flaws.
- Install wooden slats on the stern, and attach motors, antenna and electronics to them.
- Arrange the reels according to the sketch made earlier.
- Fill the engine casing with lithol, and install the propeller shaft and the propeller itself.
- Draw a circuit for the receiver and transmitter. Work on the bait boat has been completed.
Remember, in the process of creating a device, it is important to calculate its displacement. This characteristic depends on a number of factors, including:
- boat range;
- planned volume of loaded bait;
- additional equipment that is supposed to be equipped with the watercraft.
Recommended displacement range – 2.5-12 liters.
Now you can make gear for the boat and start equipping it. For night use, LEDs must be installed.
