Origami Dragon

To celebrate the new “Dragons” issue of Junior Skeptic, we’re introducing a real dragon — one you can make yourself!

This brand new origami figure was designed especially for Junior Skeptic by Australian skeptic, author, and origami artist Richard Saunders.

To conjure up a winged dragon of your own — or a flock of them! — all you need are a square piece of paper and an internet connection. Richard has kindly made a step-by-step instruction video showing exactly how to fold the figure, which you can watch online for free. Have fun!
