Celebrate Chinese New Year with this vibrant, easy-to-make dragon!

This activity is appropriate for:
kindergarten - 2nd grade / 5 - 7 years

You will need:


  1. Before beginning this craft, ask a few parent volunteers to help you cut apart egg cartons so that each egg cup is separated from the others. Then give each student five or six egg cups each.
  2. Have students paint the inside of one of the cups a darker shade, such as black, brown, or blue. This will be the inside of the dragon’s mouth.
  3. Let students paint the outside of the cup, as well as the outsides of the remaining cups, any bright color they like. Allow paint to dry.
  4. Encourage students to decorate the outsides of the cups by painting different-colored dots or adding spangles or sequins with glue.
  5. Help students punch holes in each cup so that the holes are directly across from each other. Thread a length of ribbon through the holes to connect the dragon.
  6. Glue the head onto the dragon. Add a piece of red construction paper for the tongue and glue wiggly eyes on top!
