Before you make a tank of paper origami, with young children it will be useful to work out the most basic techniques of this technique. First of all, you need to learn how to fold the paper diagonally with one edge along the other in such a way that an even angle is obtained.The formation of smooth folds is the basis of all origami. After the kid learns how to work with paper, you can start creating crafts.
From a colored paper (double-sided), we cut a fairly wide strip. If you take a standard A4 sheet, you can cut a strip 5-6 cm wide along its long edge.

Now we lead towards each other, inside, formed by the lines of the bends triangles so that the lines of their centers coincide. The short edge of the strip should go down. The result will be a triangular tip.

The edges of the upper layer of the triangle are folded up on one side. We’ll get two new triangles on the upper part.
We turn over the strip.
On the other hand, we bend the edges of the upper triangle inward - we get the diamond in the upper part.
