Happy (Belated) Chinese New Year

This has taken us a few sessions but here he is - finally! The dragon's head is made from cardboard, boxes & toilet rolls, taped together and then papier mached over. After it dried (ie a couple of days later when we got back to it!), we painted him up, and then glued an old sheet to the back which Billy then decorated.
I think he's pretty cool personally!!!
We had a meeting with some other homeschoolers today - the local Art Gallery is putting on a short film and asked for kids to be involved in it. Naturally Billy wanted to be involved - they'll be doing a battle scene - we'll be making the costumes & sets over the next couple of weeks as a group. It should be fun!

That is one super-cool dragon ... with very kind eyes.
