How to Fold a Simple Origami Mouse
This tutorial teaches you how to fold an origami mouse with an ordinary sheet of paper. This model is suitable for beginners and children. Origami is great for small kids as the only material needed is paper, no scissors or glue that could do harm!
Material: one quadratic sheet of paper
Time to fold: 7 minutes
This traditional fold used the "fish-base." The origami crane, for example, uses the "bird-base." It is an easy fold as it only uses simple folds and two inside-reverse-folds.
For this model, you need a quadratic sheet of paper. Copypaper 80 g/m² is fine, if you have access to it use origami paper (often called kami) that is a little thinner than normal paper.
Kami 60g/m² 15cmX15cm (that is about 6 inches)
