Rainbow Dragon Craft for Kids
Gather your supplies.
Take a piece of green construction paper and cut it to fit around the outside of the toilet paper roll. Use glue to attach it to the toilet paper roll. You can also colour your toilet paper with green paint or green paint stick.
Grab two large green pom poms and glue two googley eyes to them. Glue these to one end of the green toilet paper roll or tube. Take two small green pom poms and glue them to the other end as nostrils.
Grab your tissue paper in all the colours of the rainbow. Cut them into thin strips. Place a piece of double sided tape on the inside of the tube. Make sure to place the tape on the top end of the tube. Stick each of the tissue paper to the tape.
This activity is good for kids 3 years and up. My kids are 3.5, 3.5, and 7 year old.
