|T’sai Lun of China is credited for inventing paper about 2000 years ago. Perhaps that why there are so many beautiful paper crafts in China. This is a version of a Chinese Paper Dragon that is very easy for children to craft.
You need some card for the head and the tail. You can use the shapes that we have used here, or see what your children come up with. For the body you need a piece of photocopy size paper cut into two long sections as pictured.
Fold each section of photocopy paper into a concertina and glue the two sections together to create the body.
Decorate the head and the tail – we had not used glitter for a while, so we made up for it with this craft!
Glue them all together to create a nice long dragon with a concertina tummy.
Add some straws or sticks to the head and tail and take your dragon for a flight outside or parade through the house.
