Dragon Masks

Become a dragon by making your own mask!

Every 12 years, the dragon makes its return to the Chinese calendar. Even if we don't celebrate Chinese New Year at home, it still means a lot to some of our friends and work colleagues. So, to talk about it with the children and open them up to other cultures, we talk about it when we're creating.

Hereafter, the list of materials and a step-by-step tutorial.

You can download the free mask pattern and use it either directly to make a paper mask and thus start this activity at step 3, or by transferring it to a cardboard plate and following all the steps.
