Happy Lunar New Year!
We made fire breathing dragons at the craft table this morning. I saw a
similar idea at My Mundane & Miraculous Life but changed it a bit.
Start with a paper cup and poke a hole in the bottom.
Cut the crepe streamers to a length you like.
Glue the streamers to the open end of the cup, insert a straw into the
small hole, then blow.
We used a variety of materials to decorate the dragons.
Like buttons, stickers, metal bottle caps, and foam pieces.
We made them breathe fire and discovered it’s hard to ‘roar’ and
breathe fire at the same time.
We also practiced painting Chinese characters.
And enjoyed fortune cookies at snack. Both ideas were more ways to
share the idea that marks on paper have meaning.
