In a water fight, creating water bombs with pieces of origami paper can make the difference between defeating your advisory in a battle and becoming soaked with ice cold water. The paper water bombs, which resemble bombs that come from authentic aeroplanes, are made by properly folding the paper and then blowing into the paper to form a bomb-like box. Avoid overfilling the bomb, because the water can damage the outside and leave the bomb soggy.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • 1 Cup water
  • Origami paper

  1. 1

    Begin with the coloured side of the origami paper on the bottom, and then form a triangle by folding the paper from one corner to the adjacent corner. Unfold the paper, and then fold the paper horizontally with the coloured side on the outside. (See Reference 1)

  2. 2

    Unfold, and then repeat the same horizontal fold on the other side. When the paper is unfolded again, it should have a cross and "X" crease. (See Reference 1)

  3. 3

    Grab the four corners and bring them together to form two connected triangles. Fold the left corner of the top triangle to the top corner. Repeat with the right corner of the top triangle. (See Reference 1)

  4. 4

    Turn the paper around and fold the right and left corners to the top corner. After the four folds, the paper should resemble a diamond. (See Reference 1)

  5. 5

    Bring the left and right corners of the diamond to the middle, and then fold the top corner down to form ¾ of a square. Push the top corner into the left and right corners. (See Reference 1)

  6. 6

    Turn the paper around and repeat Step 5. You will notice that the top corner will be open; blow into the open hole to expand the water bomb. It will grow into a box. (See Reference 1)

  7. 7

    Pour 1 cup of water into the exposed hole to create your paper water bomb. (See Reference 1)
