For this creative craft we've been inspired by the fantastic floating fleet of vessels at the museum.

What's 'origami'? It's the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. There are so many things you can create with origami, but with this template, we're going for a simple boat. Give it a try and see how you go! Maybe you'd like to create a few and decorate your room!
