Tissue Box Dragon/Shark Tutorial

It’s the Winter holidays in South Africa and thinking of ways to keep the kiddies busy and happy can sometimes be hard.

If I can describe Winter into words its Cold and Snotty Noses.The sniffles can be exhausting to listen to let alone have.


A fun way for the kids to get enthusiastic about blowing their noses.

We did sharks and dragons (picture above of a template  for dragon)

I cut out the pieces for the body for the smaller kids but for the older kids they got to cut their own.

We then began to stick our body parts onto the wrapped tissue box.


Carefully pasting on the eyes


We go a little more creative with one as you can see. Your imagination can run wild with any sort of animal/monster etc… we attempted a Peacock with gorgeous colorful feathers.


This is all our tissue boxes all together ……I’m very proud they did such a great job!


Love to hear from you if you do attempt to try this.

Happy Holidays (Winter)
