Chinese New Year Dragon Head

You will need:

  • Egg Box
  • Coloured paper
  • PVA
  • Tissue
  • Glitter glue
  • Felt


  1. Try and peel of any old labelling off the red egg box from the scrap store. Cut the egg box in half and with the spare half cut out two egg cups for the eyes. Stick on top of the box a few inches back from the front of the dragons face. With a marker draw on eyes.
  2. Using the coloured paper cut out the nose (draw on the nostrils) and wing parts. Cut a long tongue from the felt. Stick the parts onto the dragon using PVA.
  3. You can use tissue to make a mane. Simply stick a strip to the top of the head and crumple slightly.
  4. To make the tail, draw scales onto red tissue paper (you could use crepe paper) using glitter glue. Let it dry and then stick it to the back of the dragon.
