Jonah tells us that he has learned to fold boats  in school, can we fold boats?
No, we have not done it yet. It's a nice craft, for many years it is done by children. But maybe not all parents and children know how to do it. Jonah learns us today how it's done and to make the craft even more interesting, he makes a 2 color boat!

Place1 sheet exactly on top of the other.

Fold the sheets in half together.

Fold the crease sharp using your thumbs.

Unfold the paper then fold one point to the middle.

Fold the other side the same way, the points touching.

Now fold half the bottom side up.

Flip the folding and fold the other straight side up as well.

Pick up your folding, unfold a bit and fold all triangles together.

Fold the creases sharp again using your fingers.

Then fold the top layer back up again, folding sharp.

Turn over and fold the other side the same.

Make the creases sharp again, difficult because the folding is thick.

Pull the ends out and turn the boat inside out.

Turn the points upward and unfold the boat.

Pull the underside gently to open it up a little bit.

Now the boat can sail across the - make believe - ocean ...

Well done Jona, Thank you very much!
