You can see a video of how to put the dragon together, or just follow the pictured instructions below:
Print off the dragon. I used normal printer paper. If you use something heavier like cardstock, you might need to use a heavier paperclip or multiple paperclips.
Color the dragon if you’d like. I colored mine, but my 4 year old decided not to.
Fold the dragon in half, and then fold the sides down.
Fold the wings the same way.
Glue the wings onto the dragon.
Add a paperclip to the tip of the dragon.
And let it fly!
My kids had so much fun playing with these! Dragons were flying around the house all day. And my husband joined in on the fun, too.
Enjoy the free dragon printable craft!
