Making a crocodile according to the proposed instructions is as easy as shelling pears. A detailed description of the steps will not cause difficulties even for beginners. The figure is made up of a square. A bright, unusual color will make the craft fun. Crocodiles can be of various colors and shades: green, blue, red, and gray. The finished size of the figure will be equal to the length of the side of the selected square.
The crocodile will have four short legs, a pointed tail, and a long snout. If you draw eyes or cut them out of paper and glue them, the reptile will have a character. The crocodile will become funny, reckless, cheerful, thoughtful, cunning, or angry. Rows of angular growths on the back can be depicted as stripes in a contrasting color. All that remains is to draw the nostrils and the figure is ready.
Bend the top of the acute angle down so that it extends beyond the edge of the combined parts. You should get a figure with five corners.
Make an accordion fold on both sides, stepping back a small distance from the last fold line.
Return the folded edges back, but not along the finished fold, but along a new one, retreating a short distance from the edge. The result would be the paws of a crocodile.
Make another accordion fold, forming a tail. Bend the bottom corner up along the line connecting the widest part of the shape.
When the crocodile is ready, show it to your friends or relatives. Share the joy and pride of your creation. Parents will also be happy, while friends will be inspired by the idea of making crafts using the origami technique.
