Start by coloring you dragon. You can also choose to paint your toilet roll, but I decided to leave mine plain.
Cut out all your pieces.
Fold the dragon’s head in half, along the dotted line.
Then fold up on the tabs at the end of the dragon’s neck.
Glue the head onto one end of the toilet paper roll.
Glue the tail onto the other end of the cardboard tube.
Fold each of the dragon’s feet along the dotted lines.
Attach the feet to the toilet paper tube.
Lastly, glue the wings onto the dragon’s back.
And there you have it! An awesome little dragon craft made out of a simple toilet paper roll.
