Construction Paper Dragon

One of my friends commented about the disappointing lack of dragons among my collection of Mythical Creature crafts. So I made one: 

Construction Paper Dragon


  • construction paper
  • scissors
  • glue
  • pens
  • googly eyes


Fold a piece of construction paper, then sketch a dragon with the belly along the folded line. Cut out the dragon, being sure not to cut along the fold.

Unfold, then refold the paper the opposite direction so that any pencil marks are hidden.

Fold down the wings so that they are on opposite sides of the dragon's body. 

Put a thin layer of glue on the inside of the dragon, covering every part except the wings. Press it together. 

Use pens to decorate your dragon. Use stripes, dots, or other patterns.

Draw nostrils, then add googly eyes. 

There's so much room for creativity with this project. Elongate the tail. Twist the horns. Shrink the wings. Use a rainbow color scheme. The sky's the limit!
