Dragon Craft Printable for Kids


This fun, easy, d.i.y. DRAGON CRAFT for kids, or dragon enthusiasts, can be printed at home and assemble with a few basic craft supplies. The FREE printable DRAGON CRAFT links are below. 

Makes a fun dragon craft activity for any dragon party, knight party, or Chinese New Year celebration. You can choose which Dragon Craft file to print... Red or Green. Or make them both, like we did here!

We printed each dragon on a different style paper. The green dragon is printed on translucent vellum paper. He's actually a see-through dragon.... isn't that fun?!

And the red dragon is printed on 80 lb. white card stock. With the Gold Paper.pdf file (linked below) used to print on the backside of the red Dragon Craft pages. He's actually a double-sided dragon.... isn't that cool?! There's more tricks and ideas for your dragon craft in the free PDF Printables below.

Open the files in free Adobe Reader (available here).

Have fun! Here are the Free Dragon Craft Printables:

Gather your dragon party guests, or a dragon-enthusiast friend or two, and these basic craft supplies...

  • glue or stapler
  • scissors
  • tissue paper, feathers or glitter (optional)
( fyi. These instructions are also included in the Dragon Craft PDF files in the links above )

  • Print your Dragon Craft PDF files (above).
  • Cut out the all the pieces.
  • Loop the body in a paper chain, using tape or glue to secure each loop around the next, as shown.
  • Attach your dragon head to the front of first loop.
  • Choose a flame, if desired, to attach at the mouth.
  • Fold dragon spikes where indicated, and attach to the top of every other loop, starting behind the dragon head.
  • Attach dragon tail, if desired, to the last loop.
We added wings to the red dragon using rectangles of tissue paper pinched together on one side. Then we pinched a smaller square of tissue paper down the middle to make to a bow shape, and taped it behind the head of the dragon. 

Other Embellishment Ideas:

  • Add feathers behind the dragon head, and as wings to the side loops.
  • Add glitter, or glitter paper anywhere.
  • Cover eyes with bigger googly eyes. 
  • Add more colorful paper spikes or legs. 
  • Add a flame made of orange and yellow tissue paper.
