Build a Colourful Dragon for Chinese New Year
At Astor International School, we are getting ready for Chinese New Year. Students will be creating colourful dragons….
To build a dragon, you will need:
2 popsicles sticks
red and yellow feathers
2 different colours of coloured paper
dragon face template (you can search online to find these)
Step 1: Colour in the dragon face and cut it out.
Step 2: Add feathers to the tail and face of the dragon.
Step 3: Make a paper spring and cut out two strips of different coloured paper.
Step 4: Overlap the ends of the coloured paper at a right angle and tape into position.
Step 5: Fold the bottom strip of paper over the top one. Continue this pattern of always folding the lower strip of paper over the top strip and tape into position.
Step 6: Stick both sides of the paper spring onto a popsicle stick. On one popsicle stick add the head and the other popsicle stick add the tail.
