This morning we made a dancing dragon puppet. We began with a big foam heart and several foam heart stickers. Eva arranged them to make the dragon's face.
We then added a craft stick to the back and some streamers. (I tried just taping the streamers to the back with packaging tape but it did not stick well to the foam so I ended up hot gluing them on.)
Eva is loving dancing with her special dragon!
We also read a book about Chinese dragons and the Chinese New Year. This book is perfect for the toddler/preschool crowd- simple explanations and beautiful pictures.

Great book! We made a dragon puppet craft today, too! I taped streamers to B's and thought I was so creative....looks like I wasn't as original as I thought, lol!ReplyDelete

Kids Get Crafty
Really cute! I like that it's not as scary looking as a traditional dragon.ReplyDelete
I love how that's made out of hearts, how incredibly cute.ReplyDelete
My daughter would have loved playing with that.ReplyDelete

Great idea! We made a dragon earlier but didn't think to make one out of hearts! I shared this on twitter (@CandaceApril) and facebook (Naturally Educational).ReplyDelete
This is so great. Looks like Eva had a blast, both making it and playing with it. Awesome!ReplyDelete
