Children will delight in playing with their very own dragon, this one made from toilet paper rolls and tissue pape

Materials & Tools

Toilet Paper Roll
Red or orange tissue paper
White craft glue
Tape
Green paint & paint brush
Scissors
Wiggle eyes


Directions

Paint the toilet paper roll green, representing the dragon's head. Cut eight (8) one-inch wide, 10-inch long strips from the tissue paper.

Once the paint has dried, tape the strips of tissue just inside one end of the tube, representing the dragon's fire. Glue the wiggly eyes on either side of the mouth opening, to represent the dragon's eyes.

To make the dragon "breath" fire, tuck the tissue paper inside the opening, then blow hard on the other end of the tube.

The Chinese Dragon, dancing up and down along the parade route at the Lantern Festival, is the most widely recognized symbol of the Chinese New Year. Children will delight in playing with their very own dragon, this one made from toilet paper rolls and tissue paper.
