Hello there! I’m Walter the Whale. Can you carefully follow the instructions on this activity sheet and make some paper versions of me? Then you can colour me in!

Here’s how to do it:

  • Fold a piece of square paper in half, then open it out again
  • Fold two opposite sides over so that they meet at the fold
  • Fold the tip over to just meet the other folds
  • Fold the piece in half along the central axis
  • Fold the tail end up (see the diagram on the downloadable sheet)
  • You have your final whale shape!
  • Now you can colour in your whale. Decorate him with fins, eyes and any pattern you like
