  2. We fold the top corner in half so that the angle in 90 degrees has turned out. Extend the fold.
  3. Repeat the previous step with the second corner.
  4. Fold the workpiece inside the corners so that an isosceles triangle is formed in the center.
  5. We fold the upper side corners upwards - these are frog legs.
  6. The lower part of the workpiece bend in half.
  7. We reduce the sidewall in the center.
  8. Again fold in half.
  9. We pull the bottom corners, directing them down.
  10. Bend the corners obliquely - this is the frog's hind legs.
  11. We fold the lower part in half and turn down. We turn over the work - the frog is ready. To jump, you need to press down her back with a finger.

For the second version of the frog, except for paper, you need a marker to draw the eyes.


  1. A4 sheet fold a right triangle. The remaining piece of paper is cut off.
  2. Smoothes the sheet and folds along the second diagonal.
  3. Now we make the fold so that we get a double isosceles triangle.
  4. Bend the corners of the base of the upper part to the center.
  5. The resulting triangles are again bent in half.
  6. Bend the corners of the lower triangle outwards to the base of the second figure - these are the eyes of a frog.
  7. We turn the workpiece and bring the sides of the triangle in the middle.
  8. The inner sides are bent in half outwards.
  9. We turn over the work with the “face” and make a double bend in the torso area.
  10. Coloring eyes. The handicraft is ready. To check the "jumping" you need to click on the back of the torso.

With such models, you can arrange the whole competition - which frog will jump higher and further.
