You will need:

  • A wooden spoon
  • Paint (you can make your dragon any colour you want)
  • Card (to match the colour of your paint)
  • Scraps of red, yellow and orange tissue paper/crepe paper
  • Glue
  • Wiggly eyes
  • Black  pen
  • Glitter (optional)

Step 1

Paint the spoon and leave to dry.

Step 2

Turn your spoon upside down. Draw around the bowl of the spoon onto the card. Cut out and glue to the spoon at the base of the handle (this is the lower part of the jaw).

Step 3

Glue the eyes to the back of the spoon, and draw on the nose with black pen.

Step 4

Cut of the wings from card and glue onto the bottom of the spoon handle so that the wings stand up.

Now cut an arrow-shaped tail from the card and glue onto the spoon.
