This step by step instruction will help you make the origami lotus of paper. There is a tale in Russian literature – “Frog Princess” about a hero, Ivan, who found his future wife in a swamp, where lotuses grew. You can even make the play, using paper crafts – I think, children will be interesting. They can do this origami almost by themselves. Maybe later I write about making an origami frog.
