Loo Roll Printed Dragon Craft

A few years ago I did a drawing with circles craft.  I printed out a piece of paper with lots of circles on and gave it to my charges to fill in.  They had to change each circle into something else, it was a great exercise in creativity and thinking outside of the box.  This loo roll printed dragon craft is a similar thing, but instead of drawing completely different things they need to draw different dragon faces.

Make sure you follow my Chinese New Year board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save this pin for later.

To do your own loo roll printed dragon craft you will need:

  • Paper*
  • Loo roll
  • Black paint
  • Pens

*I used red paper because of what red symbolises in Chinese culture.

Start by using the loo roll to print black circles onto the piece of paper.

Once the paint has dried turn each of those circles into a different dragon.  Before you do this craft you could look up with your children what Chinese dragons look like, because they are different to what dragons from Western cultures are like.

Dragons in Chinese Culture

The dragon is considered a legendary creature in Chinese mythology, folklore, and culture.  It is the symbol of power, nobility, honour, luck, and success.  For this reason it was used exclusively as the symbol of the ruler of the different Chinese dynasties.  China was ruled by dynasties until 1912 when the Republic of China was formed, it didn’t become the country we know it as today until 1949.  The dragon also makes up the 5th animal of the Chinese zodiac and is considered the most auspicious sign.
