Froggie fortune teller

Do you remember these from your school days? I do...putting in boy's names or your favourite colour trying to predict what would happen when you grew up. Why on earth did a 9 year old care back then? 
 
Anyway as a blast from the past this little make uses that good old fortune teller origami but with a new twist where we are going to make it into a frog! It's pretty simple and once you've got the knack you'll be making loads ;)

How to fold the frog

Print out the template and cut along the dotted line to make a square. Fold it in half, un-do and then fold in half the other way. This will give you the centre point of the page to work to.

With the frog design face down, fold each corner into the centre.

Flip it over and repeat with the 4 corners again. Fold in half one way and then the other to loosen the creases.

Tease open the holes at the back to fit your fingers in.

Optional - unfold the whole thing and cut around the frog features. Fold back up and add some glue on the flaps between the two eyes and the tongue. This will mean you can only open your frog one way and might make it a little easier for little fingers.

 Game - screw up some small pieces of left over paper and see if you can catch them in the frog's mouth.
