Folding an Origami Cicada the easy way!

These origami cicadas make no sound at all, they just sit quietly and look pretty. With my simple instructions for folding an Origami Cicada the easy way, you can fold your own origami cicada in no time at all. It’s a simple pattern I think looks best with paper that is a different color on each side. My dad who currently lives in Japan says that Japanese children love to catch cicadas and collect their empty shells in the summer. I haven’t seen to many cicadas here in New Jersey lately, so I say, “if you can’t catch them, fold your own!” Let’s relax, have a bit of fun, and start folding an origami cicada the easy way!
