Have some fun this Chinese New Year of the Dragon by making a colourful dragon puppet.
So easy to make with basic items you may already have in your craft box.
Get the kid to have fun painting the dragon in bright colours – a red dragon red is especially lucky.
You will need:
2 paper plates
an egg carton
paint and paintbrush
feathers and streamers
Gather your supplies
Cut one plate in half and fold the other in half as pictured. Cut the end of the egg carton off, these will be the eyes.
Staple the plate edges together around the edges and glue or staple egg carton section on top.
Paint brightly. When dry, glue on feathers and streamers behind the eyes.
Time to have some fun.
