Alright, let's make ourselves a paper plate dragon!

(Psst- Don't have paper plates? You can still make a cute paper dragon. Find the directions and FREE printable here.)

fold your paper plate in half and cut out dragon template

First I folded the plate in half and traced the body.  (You can make your own design, or just use my  dragon template !)


cut out all your dragon pieces from paper plates

Then, I cut out the head and tail pieces from the excess material.  We also folded down our wings.

  2. These were so fun for my class of K-2nd graders! It went perfectly with the book we read that day--Dragons Love Tacos! Thanks for the template, it made the dragons so easy to make! A couple of kids even cut out fire to glue to the dragons' mouths (since that's what happens in the story). Thanks again, I will keep this craft saved for many classes to come!!!
