How to fold an Easy Origami School Bus (And a book list)

School is right around the corner.  Eeek.  Are you ready?  We're excited and nervous around here to finally be going to "big kid school."   Ever since we folded Origami Yoda and Origami Pikachu together, my son's really been into origami crafts.  To go along with the back-to-school theme, we recently folded these origami school buses together.

Full disclosure:  I found a tutorial sharing instructions for an origami truck on a really great origami-folding website.  I'd definitely check this site out for more easy instructions.  I simplified the instructions here, but if you want more specific instructions, visit the link above!

And, as always... here's a list of fun picture books to go along with this kids' craft!

Open up your paper.  (Now you have a line to help make sure your tires are similar sizes.)  Make the two folds as shown below.

Now grab your crayons and permanent markers and doodle in some passengers and details!  (We use permanent markers because regular ones tend to smear more.)
