Origami Rabbit

Since my previous post, I was reminded of what I used to do before I got Ethan. One of which is origami. I had the opportunity to learn origami during my teaching days. Origami is the art of paper folding. I have forgotten about 60% of what I’ve learnt (what a waste!). But I still have the notes and will go through it once I have the time.

But for now, I still remember how to fold a paper rabbit. Here, I did a gigantic rabbit for Ethan. Please bare with me if the images are not satisfactory as I had my one hand on the paper, another hand on the camera, one eye on the paper and another eye on Ethan. So I was multi-tasking to the max!

We need a piece of crisp paper, a pair of scissors, markers, cotton and glue.

First, fold the paper into half to get the line in the middle.

Keep on folding. I’m not good in writing instruction, so hopefully the image will do the ‘talking’


Cut a straight line until almost halfway.

Ethan… stealing some ‘glamour’ here. Fold the ears up this way.

Use the markers to draw the eyes, ears and whiskers. Spread some glue onto the body.

Ethan helped me to paste the cotton onto the body and tail. He found it ‘disgusting’!

This is what the rabbit looks like once completed.
