Origami SpongeBob and Patrick are both basically just simple geometric shapes: a star and a box. Details like eyes and clothes are easy to colour on at the end of the paper folding. Remember that you cannot cut the paper; that is an entirely different hobby called kirigami, so cutting in origami is considered cheating.

### Things you need

• One yellow piece of 15 cm by 15 cm (6 inch by 6 inch) origami paper
• Five pink pieces of 15 cm by 15 cm (6 inch by 6 inch) origami paper
• Pencil crayon set

## SpongeBob

1. 1

Fold the 15 cm by 15 cm (6 inch by 6 inch) paper along each diagonal line and then unfold the piece.

2. 2

Fold the paper along the north, east, south and west lines and then unfold. The paper should now be divided into eight equal triangular sections.

3. 3

Raise the piece using the centre of the folded lines as the peak. Place the risen paper on its side and collapse into a smaller 3-D square, completing the basic shape for SpongeBob.

4. 4

Colour the paper square to look more like SpongeBob by using the pencil crayons. The body of SpongeBob is usually shown as a porous yellow and his trademark trousers are brown. SpongeBob usually wears a white dress shirt and red tie as well as a black belt and pair of shoes.

## Patrick

1. 1

Fold the 15 cm by 15 cm (6 inch by 6 inch) origami paper along the north, south, east and west lines and unfold the paper.

2. 2

Fold the sheet's corners into the centre of the paper, making a smaller paper square.

3. 3

Fold two of the square's parallel corner points into the centre of both sides, forming a kite shape. Flip over the piece of paper.

4. 4

Fold the top point of the kite shape into the centre of the paper. Fold the result in half to yield one point of a five-point star shape. Repeat the above steps four more times and interlock by the inserting the corner edge into the corner fold of the joining piece into a five-point star resembling the character Patrick Star from the SpongeBob SquarePants series.

5. 5

Colour the result using the pencil crayons to resemble the character more accurately. Patrick is often shown wearing lime green shorts, and his body is pink.
