We made a much smaller version of the craft and instead of making it a combined family craft, each of my boys completed their own. We used bubble wrap to paint the dragons. Love this technique. It is so fun and fast!
Since I decided to add feet to the dragons, I ended up having to cut them out for the boys after the paint was dry. We cut out different colored triangles to add spikes to the dragons. We also added a googly eye to him and finished him off with crinkled red and orange tissue paper glued to the back of his mouth for the fire. They turned out super cute! If you are interest in making this craft, I saved my dragon pattern and you can find it HERE.
The best part about this craft was that knowing the Chinese New Year was coming up, I picked up some dragon books at our trip to the library last week.
