Mythical creatures are always interesting and we used a recycled paper towel roll to make this fun one!
- Paper Towel Roll
- Plastic Eyes
Step 1: Paint a paper towel roll and some extra cardboard. Allow them to dry.
Step 2: Cut halfway through the paper towel roll until reaching the last 3 inches or so. These need to remain uncut for the dragon's head.
Step 3: Gently bend between each of the cuts to bend the tube into an arch shape.
Step 4: Add eyes to the uncut portion of the paper towel roll.
Step 5: Cut strips of colored cardstock. Roll the ends by wrapping around a finger or pencil.
Step 6: Glue the colored cardstock to the dragon's mouth for flames.
Step 7: Cut wings from painted cardboard.
Step 8: Glue the wings onto the dragon's body.
Step 9: Cut a tail from painted cardboard. We added an upside down heart shape to the end of the tail.
Step 10: Glue the tail to the end of the tube.
So fun to use recycled materials and turn them into something new!
