Chinese dragon

Introduction

Constructing this make is a great way of helping your child to develop their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they carefully cut, fold and stick the tissue paper to create the dragon's body. It's a fiddly task, so you'll need to be on hand throughout to provide help and support.

How to extend the magic

Hold your little Chinese dragon up and take him for a quick parade around the room. Swish him from side to side. Then click through to the Watch & Listen area of the CBeebies website and select 'Seasonal'. Take a look at 'Chinese New Year' to find out how one brother and sister prepare for the celebrations.
