Working together with children on origami helps not only to develop their pens and memory, but also to spend time and create a new toy for the next fairy tale about dragons. To create such a dragon, you will need a two-sided square piece of colored paper and a little time! Step 1. We collect a simple crane. Fold the sheet diagonally, vertically and horizontally. On the planned folds we put in a double square. Step 2. The next step is the fold to the center of the side edges of the square. We do this twice on both sides of the square, we get a diamond. Then extend the ribs back. On the planned folds, gently lift up the lower part of the diamond. So do the other side. We get a thin sharp diamond, the top of which we lower down. Step 3. Following step-by-step photos, we make a diamond at the topsquare and bend it inward. To get a flat section at the top, you need to slightly bend and raise the sharp edges of the diamond. And fold in half inwards. Step 4. Create a blank for the wings, folding the point of the diamond in different directions and folding in the center, as in the photo. We need to do this on both sides. Step 5. Now create a base for the tail and head of the future dragon origami. The remaining two sharp corners are folded slightly inward in such a way that they become parallel with respect to the wings. Step 6. Add the dragon of realism and make his hind legs, following the photos. Step 7. Finish the formation of the tail. First we'll make it more flat, we'll mark the folds and give the volume and shape manually, bending slightly upwards. Step 8. By analogy with the hind legs, we make the front ones. Step 9. And, of course, the head! The penultimate stage of the dragon assembly according to the scheme will be two folds up and back down. So we get the head. Step 10. Add the volume for the wings, (simply straightening them with your fingers and slightly bending the tips), at this point everything depends only on your imagination. Here is our dragon ready.
