Dragons have always fascinated us, no matter where they come from. These magnificent fire-breathing creatures that easily fascinate children and make them wish real dragons existed.

Chinese dragons are marvelous in both power and color, certainly one of the most colorful legendary beasts to ever exist. I hope I managed to capture some of that magic in this printable Chinese dragon puppet design.

Whether it’s a party at your house, a lesson learning about a foreign culture in the classroom, or just having fun with this mythical creature, this craft project is ideal for young and old. large environments. It’s a wonderful, easy-to-follow craft project for the classroom or it can be a quick way to break the boredom to do at home.

Moreover, I hope this puppet will encourage your children to play with it after you make it, holding puppet shows to delight you, friends, classmates…

How to Make a Printable Chinese Dragon Puppet

What do you need:

  • you will need our printable Chinese dragon puppet template (also available in this printable character puppet set)
  • printer

  • coloring supplies (markers, pencils, etc.)
  • the scissors
  • glue

Watch the video tutorial

Or follow these step by step instructions

Print the puppet, preferably on thicker printer paper (especially if you are going to color the dragon puppet with markers), or use regular printer paper.

It’s time to color! On the sheet with the puppet, color the middle third of the drawing. The left and right thirds do not need coloring as they will not be seen.

Also color in the “accessories” on the other sheet.

Fold along all the dotted lines of the drawing.

Make sure the creases are neat. We pass a stick over the folds to make them neat in no time.

Fold the horizontal and vertical dotted lines.

When all the lines are folded, unfold.

Turn the paper over, the drawing facing the table. Fold over the “third” side with the word glue on it. Apply glue.

Fold the other side over, covering the one with “glue”, and press together so the glue sets.

Now fold it into an M shape, because your folds are already nice and neat, it will be really easy to do.

It’s best to give the glue a little longer to set, so we recommend using a clothespin (instead of holding with your hands and waiting) to hold the puppet together.

Cut out all the accessories. Fire ears, fierce mustaches and teeth. Fold along the dotted line separating the design and the teeth and ears.

Glue the props onto your printable Chinese dragon puppet (don’t worry, the design allows the teeth to fit inside the mouth, and the mouth opens and closes nicely).

Finished!
