Look at this guy! Dragons probably aren’t referred to as “cute” very often, but I can’t help myself. 

This is a quick and easy puppet craft that we used for a book activity already and will use for our Chinese New Year learning activities.

Ways to Use a Paper Dragon Puppet

We’ve used these for book learning activities, Chinese New Year, a fun “How to Train Your Dragon” movie night craft, and even made them for playdates.

The kids cannot get enough of these quick dragon puppets because all you need is construction paper, glue, and tape.

We used these for a fun book activity for Hippopotamus Stew and Other Silly Poems. Because the kiddo loved it so much, we used it for our holiday discussion of Chinese New Year, too.
