Topic: Dragon Kites
Craft Project Directions:
To create a soaring dragon kite, first cut out a kite in the shape of a dragon's head from a heavier weight paper using the pattern provided. Next cut out some dragon scales, mouth, and teeth. Take some paper cups and attach them to the top of the kite to make large eyes. Add the dragon scales, teeth and mouth to the kite next and decorate! Add crepe paper streamers to the end of the kite to make it colorful and playful.

This is a craft that requires an adult to do ALL of the cutting. Children would enjoy adding creative details later.
Notes
These are truly some of my favorite dragon books. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do.
