Chinese New Year Dragon
Here is how we made our dragon. We started off with plain paper plates. The kids used reds and golds and oranges and yellows to paint their plates. The girls used brushes, but I thought Bug would have more fun with the little bath loofah. (I know his apron isn't very manly, but it did the job!)
While the girls worked on the body, I used some of their painted plates to start on the face. To make the nose, I folded the plate in half and folded the pieces in on each other. Birdy attached blue horns, button eyes and a fuzzy nose.
Once we finished our dragon dance, I hung our new creation from the ceiling using hooks. I think he is a wonderful addition and may bring a little luck to my kitchen! I could use it!
