To celebrate Chinese New Year this year we decided to make a dragon puppet, but we got a bit carried away and ended up making two puppets.
The first puppet we made was a dragon hand puppet made from two egg boxes. Harry loved this one as he could put his hand inside the puppet to make the dragons mouth open and close. He had a great time chasing me around the house making the dragon eat me! Click here to find out how to make an egg box dragon puppet.
Harry loved his egg box puppet so much that we decided to make him a friend. Our paper plate dragon puppet was really simple to make and Harry had lots of fun making his dragon dance. We painted our paper plate inside a freezer bag which added to the fun. Click here to find out how to make a paper plate puppet.
