I decided the best way to show Kade what to do was to make a wolf myself. So I read the directions and tried my best to follow them. Kade watched and tried his best to copy me. (We both need to perfect precise folds.)
In the end we didn't have enough time to finish because we had to pick up Mat. I worked a little more on them and after peeking at the video I linked above I think I know how to finish what I didn't understand. Even though we didn't finish Kade still wants to make origami. He did tell me it was harder than he thought it would be. I wasn't around when the crane was created but I'm assuming the guy that made the crane whipped it out in no time making it look super easy.
