DIY Fire Breathing Dragons Craft

You all know how much I LOVE Pinterest, so when I stumbled across a craft that looked like it’d be fun to make, I naturally accepted the challenge to mirror it. Sometimes I nail it, and other times I fail, miserably.

My son loves dragons, so I thought this would be the PERFECT project for us to do together.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • toilet paper roll
  • green or red construction paper
  • 2 medium pom poms
  • 2 small pom poms
  • 2 medium eyes
  • red, orange and yellow tissue paper
  • glue stick, glue gun or glue dots

*Glue dots worked best for this activity

I am pretty good about collecting toilet paper and paper-towel rolls because I see them being transformed into a crafts right away.  It’s wise to get into the habit of collecting them, that way you’re not scrambling trying to find one when you find a craft you want to make.

Here’s how you make it:

  • cut the construction paper to the size of the toilet paper roll and glue it around the roll
  • glue the googly eyes onto the larger pom poms
  • glue the larger pom poms with the googly eyes onto the toilet paper roll on one end
  • glue the small pom poms onto the other end
  • cut 10-12 long strips of the red, orange and yellow tissue paper
  • use the glue to glue them on the inside of the toilet paper roll the whole way around
  • let dry for 20 minutes

Seeing my boys having a blast with them was worth the time it took to make them. They might not be perfect, but we enjoyed making them and playing with them.
