Download Activity Guide
  • Step 1Copy the Chinese Dragon head and tail templates onto white cover paper to begin.
  • Step 2Paint the head and tail and allow to dry. Apply a coat of glitter watercolour to add sparkle. Allow to dry.
  • Step 3Paint sections on the head with glue, while the glue it still wet sprinkle with glitter. Allow to dry.
  • Step 4To create the dragon’s body choose a piece of craft paper and cut into three equal strips (7cm wide).
  • Step 5Join the ends of your strips together so you now have one long paper strip.
  • Step 6Choose a second piece of craft paper and repeat step 4 and 5. You should now have two long strips of craft paper.
  • Step 7Glue the ends of the two long strips together creating a right angle.
  • Step 8Fold the horizontal strip back over itself.
  • Step 9Fold the vertical strip up and over itself.
  • Step 10Repeat steps 8 and 9 until you have a square of folded craft paper. When you have one fold remaining place a dab of glue on the top of the folded square. Fold the remaining paper over securing it on the top.
  • Step 11Glue the tail and head to either ends of the folded paper strips.
  • Step 12Finally, glue a popstick under the head and one under the tail to use as handles for the puppet.
