In case you've got a dragon lover at home.... here are our two current favorite dragon books:
We've also been watching the How to Train Your Dragon movies and series on Netflix. (Looking over the craft now, I think that series inspired the design of these dragons!)
Alright, let's make ourselves a paper plate dragon!
First I folded the plate in half and traced the body. (You can make your own design, or just use my dragon template !)
Then, I cut out the head and tail pieces from the excess material. We also folded down our wings.
Then, I slid the head and tail pieces between our body pieces and stapled everything together.
Then, we went wild and used our favorite paints and Sharpie Markers to decorate our dragons! Here's the one that I made....
and here's the rainbow one that my son painted!
