Make a Paper Pteranodon Using Origami
I can’t say that I have ever really tried my hand at origami. I tried making lucky stars from those glittery strips of paper once and I’ve folded a few paper hats and airplanes but never anything that takes real talent. Today I ran across a really great video tutorial on how to make a paper pteranodon using origami. If you’re like me, when you attempt something potentially complicated or tedious you find it much easier to do with a step by step visual tutorial.

If you want to add a little something extra to your Pteranodon run to your local crafts store (Joanns, Michaels or Hobby Lobby) and snag some colored crafting paper.
There are plenty of paper dinosaur origami tutorials out there but there are a few things that I really like about this tutorial. The first thing I like about this tutorial is that it’s easy to follow and origami seems like it can be so difficult to get the hang of. I can’t say that this is the “best” tutorial because like I said, I’ve never really tried origami before, but I can say that I managed to make my paper Pteranodon without redoing it a million times and that must count for something. The second thing I like about this tutorial is that it gives instruction for an origami Pteranodon that moves.
If you’re not a fan of origami see if you can’t persuade a friend to give this one a try and donate their Pteranodon to you because this is a really neat little desk toy.
