Make A Dragon
You Will Need:
A paper towel cardboard roll
Crayons or markers
Step One - Print out the dragon head and feet. Cut out and color. Reinforce with cardboard. Paint or color the cardboard to match your dragon. Let dry.
Step Two - Print out the dragon skin. Color. Trim the skin to fit around the cardboard roll. Glue on the skin.
Step Three - Print out the dragon tail. Color. Fit the tail onto the end of the cardboard roll. Trim if necessary. Glue. Let dry.
Step Four - Cut two pieces of tissue paper about 1 and 1/2 in wide and the length of your dragon plus a little extra to wrap around the tail. Cut the paper in a jagged fashion without cutting it apart. Glue onto the dragon's back and tail. For an example refer to the picture on the main Chinese New Year page.
Step Five - Glue the head to the front of the dragon. Glue on the feet to the sides of the dragon. Let glue dry. Enjoy!
Optional - You can glue extra pieces of jagged tissue paper around the head for more dimension.
