We have recently been trying our hand at Origami and the kids absolutely love it.  It is such a fun activity and super easy. No fancy materials required or trip to the craft store for this Origami Cube.

This is a great example of an activity that utilizes things around the house. If you need a rainy day activity, try making an Origami Cube.

Supplies for paper cube origami:

  • Paper – We used 6 different colors of origami paper but you can use any colors that you like. Even scrap paper would work.

How to make a cube out of paper:

Meausuring paper.
  • First, each sheet of paper needs to be cut into the same size square.  We made a 6″X6″ square for this cube but any size will work as long as they are all the same size.

    Bigger squares make larger cubes and smaller squares will make smaller cubes.
