The origami koi fish does not need to be folded from special paper. The only thing to keep in mind that it needs to be quadratic. I use 15cm time 15cm Origami Paper in the Video. this Origami Paper is Called Kami. You can buy the paper online or in crafting stores. But cutting printer paper down to a square before folding will work just as well.
About the Origami Fish
This origami model is traditional. That means no one knows who folded it first and that the model is in the public domain. This model also uses cutting. This was common in traditional Origami and only later was considered cheating. Today Origami with cutting is often called Kirigami instead of Origami. This is a popular craft with kids. Due to the cutting I recommend the supervision of an adult. There are also a lot of other models that can be folded without scissors. Simple Origami Examples for Kids include the Kabuto Samurai Hat and the Jumping Frog. I linked to instructions for both of them.
