Cut the paper plate as shown in the illustrator. First, cut it in half. Cut one half in half again to make 2 quarters and then cut one of the quarters in half again. Now cut the rim of the plate off the quarter plate piece.
Cut little triangles off the plate rim piece to make the tail and draw a dragon head on the remaining piece. Cut out your dragon head and give some shape to the two other small plate pieces for the wings.
Your dragon is now ready to decorate and ensemble. Decorate! The dragons with your favourite metallic easy wash paint.
When dry and ready, staple the pieces of your dragon together. For finishing touches, you can go over the dragon's face with a black marker and add googly-eyes.
Now you can add craft sticks to the bottom to turn ours into puppets. Now you're ready to play!
