- Cut 3 – 12 inch piece of crepe paper.
- Cut each piece of crepe paper in half lengthwise so that you have 6 – 12 inch piece of crepe paper
- For the body of the dragon, stack three piece of crepe paper on top of each other and fold into an accordion shape approximately a half inch wide.
- Turn dragon head and body over and tape the ends of the three pieces of accordion crepe paper to the head and the other ends to the tail.
- Tape one straw to the head and one to the tail with the bottom of the straw hanging off the bottom of the puppet.
- Cut the extra 3 pieces of crepe paper in half lengthwise and then again lengthwise, so they are 3 inches approximately in length. You can then tape those piece to the back of the dragon to hang off the bottom.
- As an added option, you can cut the smaller piece to create fridge.
