Origami Canoe

Day-5 Origami Canoe

A canoe is a small narrow boat, typically human-powered, though it may also be powered by sails or small electric or gas motors. Canoes usually are pointed at both bow and stern and are normally open on top, but can be covered. In its human-powered form, the canoe is propelled by the use of paddles, usually with two people. Paddlers face in the direction of travel, either seated on supports in the hull, or kneeling directly upon the hull. Paddling can be contrasted with rowing, where the rowers usually face away from the direction of travel and use mounted oars (though a wide canoe can be fitted with oarlocks and rowed). Paddles may be single-bladed or double-bladed.(Source-origami-kids)

Origami canoe can be termed slighty higher than simple in the difficulty level,this is because its not tough to fold but tough to unfold the last part to get the shape of the boat.

I started with a standard square orgami paper and got the boat done in the first go.So I believe its not that difficult.Also a suggestion would be to use a double side coloured/contrast coloured paper to get the actual effect.

I have taken 1/2 of 5 7/8th inch square sheet of origami paper

Here is my finished origami canoe
