Take black paper and scissors and cutout all the parts of Toothless of it. Add yellow circles, then black and then white ones on the head to make the eyes and a touch of red to the tail. Place another part in black on top and draw a nose on the dragon head. Glue all the paper parts to the dragon body.

Cut out a head of white paper and add blue eyes to it using colored paper again. Draw a nose and a mouth with an ink pen or whatever else you have at hand. Attach wings cut out of white paper on top, add body details to give the dragon a more dimensional look. Pin the dragon to the blue circle so that it could spin around.
