Super Cute Origami Unicorns

Over the years I've shared a TON of rainbow-inspired kids craftsBut lately it seems like unicorns are all the rage.  (My littlest guy adores them and a couple of friends have already held magical unicorn-rainbow-themed birthday parties. ) 

So I'm jumping upon the back of the beautiful unicorn bandwagon!  (Neigh! Neigh!)  Here's my take on an easy unicorn craft.... here's a simply adorable origami unicorn that you can make with all your unicorn-loving kids too!

Materials Needed to Fold Unicorn Origami Heads:


  • Origami Paper
  • Scissors
  • Sharpies (I like these more than normal markers because they don't smear on origami paper)
  • Crayons (Optional for cheeks)

Let's Fold Some Origami Unicorns!

Step 1:  Take a normal sized piece of paper and cut it into 4 equal squares.   (I just think unicorn heads look cuter smaller.)  You can do this by folding the paper in half and then in half again.  Then, cut along those lines.  So the paper that I'm using from now on is a fourth of the size of normal paper.

Step 2: Fold your paper along the diagonals +  then open it up
