Construction paper, markers, crayons, streamers, and a tongue
Pre-cut the shape of a dragon's
head (out of med-heavy construction paper).
Make eye holes. The Chinese dragon is so colorful. Allow the
kids decorate the face with markers, crayons, etc. Staple streamers
to the bottom. Glue the face to a tongue depressor
for the kids to use as a handle. The children
then become dragons!

Cardboard box, paint, paper, blanket
Put on a Chinese New Year parade. Make a dragon costume. The head can
be made from a cardboard box, with eyes and teeth drawn or painted
on, and paper fringe glued on. Have one person carry the head
in the parade, the rest of the children are the body, and dance around
shouting Gung Hay Fat Choy. The body can be made from a blanket or
long piece of cloth, maybe red or decorated with paper scales.
