Roar!!! This dragon cup craft led to a great game of �run away from the dragon' in our house with as much giggling as roaring. When your child blows through the hole in the bottom of the cup, the streamers taped to the front of the cup blow around to create a fire breathing dragon. The materials are simple and the construction is very easy; the hardest part was waiting for the glue to dry so we could play! This is a fantastic dragon craft for boys or girls that love all things dragons and would be a wonderful craft to make at a knight themed party as well.

What you'll need:

  • Paper cup (if already green you are a step ahead!)
  • Green streamers or tissue paper
  • Dragon eyes template
  • Red streamers or tissue paper
  • White construction paper
  • Black crayon or marker
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Tape
How to make your dragon breathing fire craft:
  1. An adult should use the scissors to poke a quarter-sized hole in the bottom of the cup.
  2. Cut red streamers that are about 6-8 inches long. Tape the streamers on the inside of the cup, all the way around the rim. We found taping them about an inch inside the cup gave the best effect.
  3. Use the glue stick to cover a small area of the cup at a time. Rip green tissue paper or streamers and tape the pieces to the cup. Cover the whole cup with green paper, gluing down any flaps.
  4. Print the dragon eye template and cut the pieces out.
  5. Draw a black circle on each eye piece.
  6. Fold the bottom of the eye as shown and tape each eye to the top of the cup.
  7. Once dry, tuck the red streamers loosely into the cup. Blow in the hole in the back of the cup and the streamers should blow out like fire!
