Easy Origami Yoda Tutorial

So... I folded this origami pikachu with my son.  And after folding it together, it suddenly dawned on me.  If I just tweaked the ears to my original directions, I could make a Yoda instead.  (What?  Love it when those "aha!" moments hit.)  If  you're a Star Wars lover (or raising some little Star Wars lovers), definitely check today's post out.  Tada!  I'm sharing my easy instructions for folding an origami Yoda!

Over the years I've done several  origami / kirigami / paper snowflake / paper manipulation crafts.  But this one is definitely my favorite.  The Yodas turn out soooo cute. Plus, I love that the same set of directions can be used to make 2 completely different characters!

And one random note- have you read the Origami Yoda book series?  I heard it was popular and peeked at it... but it's too hard for my eldest.  It's on my "to-read" list for when I get a teensy bit more sleep.  But I'm really curious.   If you or your child has read it, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
