You will need:
Draw thehead and tail of a lion or dragon on a piece of paper.
Cut the head and tail out and decorate with bright colors. Optional: Decorate with glitter and feathers.
Fold a piece of paper in half the long way. Cut along the fold line, making two long rectangles.
Fold each piece of paper up like an accordion. Glue or tape the two pieces together, forming one long piece that will be the animal's body.
Glue or tape one end of the body to the head. Glue or tape the other end of the body to the tail.
Tape one skewer (or straw) to the head and the other skewer (or straw) onto the tail.
You now have a dragon or lion that can dance for Chinese New Year.
