Tips to Make This Dragon Paper Roll Craft

  • Making this dragon blower paper roll craft is so simple. The hardest part is the frill and the little whiskers. Grab the free printable template here to make cutting out those parts just a bit easier.
  • I strongly recommend pairing this fun paper craft with a balloon. The little one has so much fun blowing the balloon around, keeping it in the air or just generally breathing fire on the balloon with the “flames” from the dragon.
  • If you want to have a really good time, you can put a kazoo from the dollar store into the back of the paper roll and let the dragon make a funny, funky sound every time the little one gives it a good honk. Or you can skip it like it did.
