This page is for those who want the instruction to fold a traditional origami jumping frog.


Traditionally this origami jumping frog is known to be as a Chinese version of origami jumping frog. Here I use a typical origami paper to fold this model, but it would be better to use a little thicker paper if you want to make the frog to jump. One special folding technique involved with this model is squash-fold.


Before working on this model, you need to know what valley-fold and mountain-fold are. If you know these two folding techniques, then you will have no problem in making origami frog.


If you are ready, then let's get started.

You may use any kind of paper to fold this origami frog. Make sure the paper that you use is a square (all sides are equal and all the angles equal 90 degrees). The paper I am using here is 15cm x 15cm square one. It is a good size for those who are not experienced in paper folding. If you are become familiar with this model. Then you can try smaller size paper.
