Parade with a one-of-a-kind Chinese Dragon puppet. Celebrate Chinese New Year, the country’s literature, or other aspects of this ancient culture.
Find the significance of dragons in Chinese culture. See how dragons are depicted in Chinese literature, culture, and festivals. Here’s one way to make a puppet based on your findings.
Using Crayola® Model Magic®, form a dragon head about as large as your fist. Poke holes in the back of the head for your fingers.
With contrasting colors of Model Magic, add facial features to the dragon such as eyes, eyebrows, ears, nose, horns, and fangs. Air-dry the dragon head at least 24 hours.
Cover your art area with white paper. With Crayola Scissors, cut enough plain white 100% polyester fabric to cover your lower arm. Draw a Chinese pattern on the fabric with Crayola Fabric Crayons.
To make an ironing pad, place white paper or newspaper over an iron-safe surface. Place fabric on ironing pad. Top design with white paper.
Ironing should be done by an adult in a well-ventilated area. Set iron on synthetic. Press design with slow steady pressure for 1 to 2 minutes. Lift iron to move it. Hold paper in place to prevent blurring. Remove paper carefully. For brighter colors, add more crayon while the fabric is still warm. *Overheating or scorching may release irritating fumes.
Using Crayola School Glue, attach fabric to your dragon’s head. Air-dry before performing or parading with your puppet.
