Build your own Dragon!

3 02 2012

We love to make creations out of recyclable materials here at the Museum! Most of the items that we use you will be able to find around your house, but if you do not have one of our materials, simply look around for something you could use instead. Just get creative!

What you will need:

  • Plastic Bag
  • One Paper Plate
  • Two Cotton Balls
  • Tape
  • Tissue Paper
  • Glue
  • Paint

Stage One:

Fill the plastic bag with tissue paper. Roll the bag up to a tube shape (as shown above). Tape the bag in shape.

Stage Two

Using the paper plate, draw and cut out four dragon feet shapes (as shown above)

Stage Three:

Using any color you choose, paint all of the dragon pieces.

Stage Four:

Glue the dragon feet into place and also glue the two cotton balls (dotted with paint) to make eyes.

Stage Five: Finished!

Once the paint is dry, your creation is complete!

Why don’t you try adding decoration to the dragons back, or add a nose!

  • Now try using other materials instead of the plastic bag and tissue paper? How about bubble wrap instead? What about ping pong balls for eyes instead of the cotton balls?
